Explore Yourself Through Free Music Making: Music Therapy 

In this workshop, Music is used as a psychotherapeutic tool to obtain emotional, social and psychological wellness.

Inherent in music therapy practice is the belief that everyone is innately musical and can, therefore, engage in therapeutic processes through this medium.

We will use music to explore, express and relate with others and ourselves.

This will encourage participants to make use of their creativity in relation to emotions, thoughts and interactions.

Tools:

  • Musical improvisation
  • Interactive music-making
  • Singing and voice work
  • Self-exploration and reflection through music

Benefits:

  • Exploring emotions and expressing them creatively
  • Creating opportunities for self-reflection
  • Rejuvenation in shared musical experiences

Key Takeaways:

  • To use music as a channel of self-expression and emotional release
  • To ignite your innate musicality and use these tools therapeutically
  • To relate with others musically and explore relationships through creativity
