In this free Humanity and Health webinar, Dr. Linda Austern and Dr. Jennifer Saltzstein discuss music, health, and the social process of music therapy, on May 4th, Noon-1pm Central Standard Time.
In sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England, music was considered a powerful therapeutic agent, able to maintain each individual’s health based on unique constitution. It was also deemed capable of healing a wide range of mental and physical disorders by means of many kinds of vocal and instrumental practices with which people across the social spectrum could engage as they chose.
