With Music in Mind Conference- Sponsored by TILT
Music and the Brain, Meditation and the Zone.
Music positively affects almost every area of the brain — improving creativity, effecting perception of neutral faces, influencing brain development in children, listening ability and even enabling connections with non-verbal people in all stages of life including Alzheimer’s patients.
Join us for a week-end of lively discussion, exploration of meditation, and neuroscience in the classroom, in this closing OFF the HOOK Festival week-end, hosted by composer Bruce Adolphe.
This will be the perfect opportunity to understand on-going research studies about the effects of music and meditation on the brain, with leading neuroscientists in their fields. You will delve deeper into understanding what it is to be In the Zone — a state common to composers, performing musicians, and Tibetan monks, as well as a variety of meditation practices and Feldenkrais® Method.
