Description
Music has been used as a therapeutic tool to support physical, psychological, social integration and wellbeing since time began. Across traditions, the relationship between sound and silence is central to transformative, spiritual experience. Pre-verbal and proto-musical “play” is vital to human bonding and authentic connection.

In this session we will work with the basic building blocks of musical communication (breath-sound-voice and body rhythm) to build confidence in our ability to communicate and connect beneath and beyond words. We will also explore the history and theoretical underpinnings around breath-sound-voiced communication, think about how we can apply some of the practical ideas to our clinical settings and enjoy the session for our own creative development and self-expression.
