Tips from a Music Therapist

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Kimberly Sena Moore, Ph.D., lecturer

Across cultures and time, music has held an important role in supporting health and wellness in individuals and communities. More recent advances in brain imaging studies have helped us understand how to utilize music more effectively to promote healthy living. Professional music therapists leverage this impact to promote specific therapeutic change — how might this help the rest of us? Join us in exploring music’s impact on physical and mental health and discover musical strategies you can incorporate to live well.

This presentation is part of the Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning Wellness and the Arts series.
