Course Description

Research proves the benefits of music's effect on brain health. Engaging with music through attending concerts, playing an instrument, or simply listening to music creates joyful and meaningful experiences. Formal music therapy is helpful for those who've had a stroke or are experiencing cognitive difficulties related to dementia or Parkinson’s disease. Learn how music can help to maintain brain health and improve movement, cognition, emotional, and social well-being. Presented by Edward Roth, Director of Music Therapy at WMU.
