Description: Many people use music in their everyday lives to motivate, soothe, distract, or energize themselves, but is there a way we can maximize these effects? This workshop will engage participants in a discussion of the idea of adding intention behind music to enhance its effects and potential impact. Participants will leave the workshop with a tool they can utilize in their daily lives and additional strategies will be covered for participants of all musical levels from avid listeners to gigging musicians.
Date: Thursday, March 31st @ 12:00 PM, EST
