    Description

    Course uncovers what happens in the brain when we hear, sing, or play music. Course includes musicological and scientific literature that documents the differing and often surprising ways in which music measurably affects the human body. We'll survey selected ancient and cross-cultural traditions in which music is used to drive out disease and restore health. The class will investigate emerging applications of music in 21st-century medicine and discuss the outcomes and implications of the most current studies of music as a viable alternative to certain conventional western medical practices. After students have learned how to aurally identify musical elements such as meter, mode, melodic activity, patterns of rhythm, and types of harmony, they'll monitor their own responses to music and test its strategic use in their own health and sense of well-being. The course is designed for non-musicians and musicians alike; all students are welcome regardless of musical experience and training.
