Music and the creation of pleasant sound is something that is an art by itself. Be it instruments, or the human voice the topic deserves a track all to itself - and is also a space that is still quite nascent in a country like India.
We are looking for topics around ... songwriting, managing and promoting your own band, musical instruments (there are some pretty cool things happening with tech there), discussions around music genre, sound engineering, discussions for and with audiophiles - even a bit around sound mixing or synthesizing and sound production (though a bit of the last one will come in sound engineering).
We’d also imagine you’ll have topics and conversations to share around singing lessons (maybe your experience with it - and if you figured out if you have the winning voice), discussions around music education, the impact of music on the soul and person, or even if you want to start a debate on different genres or styles of music.
If you have some insights around any of these, are would consider yourself an expert - or want to moderate a session (and invite some experts) please do.
Music Therapy: Introduction & Demo
- To understand what music therapy is
- To use music as a medium to connect with an inner rhythm
Music is an integral part of all our lives. But did you know you could use it to heal yourself?
Every human being has an innate rhythm – whether that is the sound of their own heart beat or the blood throbbing in their veins. This rhythm is likely to sync with the rhythm that one craves outside.
All individuals, regardless of age or musical background, have a basic capacity for musical expression and appreciation. The process of human development prepares everyone, at a basic level, with the potential to sing, play simple instruments, move to music, react/respond to the elements of sound, perceive relationships between sounds, remember music, visualise music and ascribe meaning to a musical experience.
Music Therapy is at its nascent stage in India. This interactive session will give you an orientation about music therapy along with a few fun exercises so that you can test it out and connect with yourselves.
Nothing. Just come and enjoy
