I wrote about the Berrett's in December after attending their Music Workshop at the Positive Aging Conference. Now you can examine your own relationship to music as I did. Join Josh and Lynn Berrett on your telephone via a bridge line on Sunday, February 21st from 7:30-8:45 PM ET.
Here is what you'll experience in their own words:In this session we will explore the agelessness of the creative musical mind.
Josh will share his broad and deep knowledge of music with you in an interactive format. Lynne will contribute insights about music from research in neuroscience and positive psychology.
Here’s some food for thought.
Do you know how old Paul McCartney was when he wrote “When I’m 64” and what makes the song a classic?
Do you know the connection between Igor Stravinsky and that old standard, “Happy Birthday”?
Do you know what kinds of music tend to relax or stimulate us and why?
Join us to learn the answers to these questions and more.
You will get these benefits from attending “Music Appreciation for an Ageless Mind.”
You will get specific information about some of the very best performances of the music we play for you, so you can add them to your own collection.
While you enjoy listening to the music we feature--some of it familiar and some new--you will also be stimulating new brain growth. Learning about music at the same time as you listen to it activates many different parts of the brain, for a “balanced workout.” (See, for example, Elkhonon Goldberg, The New Executive Brain (Oxford U. Press, 2009)
You can give your body a virtual workout while you listen and learn with us. All you need is your own heartbeat. Music appreciation can also be fun.
· You will learn how you can consciously utilize music to strengthen your spirit, mind and body. Music’s transcendent qualities and its ability to stir profound feelings can help sustain overall well-being, especially when you understand how to listen. If you are interested, we can even help you develop a Mindful Musical Practice by using specific kinds of music.
So we invite you to join us for “Music Appreciation for an Ageless Mind” as we begin our voyage into the infinite world of great music in exciting performances.We will send you the bridgeline and PIN number after you register.
Cost? $20.00 per session. (You will be entitled to the recording whether or not you attend in person.)
