What is Music Appreciation for an Ageless Mind?
It’s an ongoing series of educational sessions about music that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home simply by calling in on your own phone. We will send you the bridgeline and PIN number after you register. Each session can stand alone and will be available to you afterwards as an mp3 recording if you register, whether or not you can attend in person.
On February 21st we will explore the agelessness of the creative musical mind.
Josh will share his broad and deep knowledge of music with you in an interactive format. Lynne will contribute insights about music from research in neuroscience and positive psychology.
Here’s some food for thought:
Do you know how old Paul McCartney was when he wrote “When I’m 64” and what makes the song a classic?
Do you know the connection between Igor Stravinsky and that old standard “Happy Birthday”?
Do you know what kinds of music tend to relax or stimulate us and why?
Join us to learn the answers to these questions and more.
You will get many benefits from attending Music Appreciation for an Ageless Mind.
- You will get specific information about some of the very best performances of the music we play for you, so you can add them to your own collection.
- While you enjoy listening to the music we feature–some familiar and some new–you will also be stimulating new brain growth. Learning about music at the same time as you listen to it activates many different parts of the brain, for a “balanced workout.” (See, for example, Elkhonon Goldberg, The New Executive Brain (Oxford U Press, 2009)
- You can give your body a virtual workout while you listen and learn with us. To make music all you need is your own heartbeat. Music appreciation can also be fun!
- You will learn how you can consciously utilize music to strengthen your spirit, mind and body. Music’s transcendent qualities and its ability to stir profound feelings can help increase overall well-being, especially when you understand how to listen. If you are interested, we can even help you develop a Mindful Musical Practice using specific kinds of music.
So we invite you to join us for Music Appreciation for an Ageless Mind as we begin our voyage into the infinite world of great music in exciting performances.
