Music in the Classroom: Active and Receptive Music Therapy for Schools 

Table of Contents

Description

Music is around us every moment of the day and gives us the possibility to see the world differently. It enhances senses, brings back memories, and develops our emotions and feelings – including fear, joy, sadness, euphoria, and many more.

What if we could bring it to the classroom as a therapy for the mind, to reduce stress and anxiety, and help our focus? 

This course aims to introduce music as a therapy in the classroom. It will provide participants with quick and easy music skills applicable to the classroom to help release stress and anxiety, and improve the general working environment.

Participants will learn how to liberate emotions through music, how to help students bond through music, and how to reduce stress and anxiety thanks to relaxation. Through active music therapy and under the assistance of an experienced trainer, they will also explore how to activate groups thanks to music games.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to apply quickly easy music therapy techniques to their daily routine to improve attention, bring a more peaceful work environment, and improve their efficiency.
