WORKSHOP – Communication and how Music affects the Brain
In June The Music Therapy Trust was honoured by a visit from our founder, Dr Margaret Lobo who stayed in India for 3 weeks inspiring us all with her great knowledge and warm heart. Just before Margaret flew back to London she conducted a workshop together with Nina, our senior music therapist. The workshop was on Communication and how Music affects the Brain, open for anyone interested to learn more about Music Therapy and its remarkable ability to enhance communication, language, cognition and social interaction. The workshop included plenty of useful information on how music can be beneficial for a wide range of people, both children with autism as well as elderly with dementia, just to mention a few. Here are some pictures from the workshop:
The participants engaged both in discussions as well as some practical music making. The workshop was a great success and we hope that the participants left feeling inspired. Who knows, some of them might even apply for our post graduate course?
