There is Silence in Music
Music Heals the Brain
Music Therapy & Sound Therapy
Music therapy is a professional field of practice that is offered worldwide in universities with years of research exploring how music affects our physical, cognitive, mental and emotional health. There are many studies showing that music listening and music making can help re-wire neuronal pathways in the damaged brain, improve auditory processing in non-injured brains as well as, regulate mood, and synchronize brain activity into relaxed states.
As a board-certified Music Therapist, with my Master’s degree in Music Therapy, I combine both music therapy and sound therapy in my practice. I love discussing topics on the science of sound, so if you want to learn more check out my podcast, Be Well : Be Sound.
My work is based in the science of sound…
Creating therapeutic music and sound is a science as much as it is an art. Both are required in order to understand how to make a therapeutic music experience that is soothing to the nervous system, calming for the mind, and balancing for the physiological systems of the body. A music therapist or sound therapist music understand the elements of sound, vibration, harmony, rhythm, pulse, tempo, dynamics, melody, pause, frequency, overtones and timbre, and then master the application of each of these in sound experiences.
