Music Care Conference Toronto 2016

Theme: Dimensions of Music Care

WHAT? The Music Care Conference (MCC) is a one day conference bringing together care partners interested in the role music has in quality of living and care. The Toronto 2016 conference will explore dimensions of music care from experts in the field, including:

Speakers include:

  • Corene Hurt-Thaut – Neurologic Music Therapy
  • Susan Mazer – Sound and Patient Experience
  • Kristine Theurer – Java Group Programs
  • Michael Thaut – Current Research from the Music and Health Research Collaboratory and SONATA – an interactive technology for stroke rehabilitation
  • Amy Clements-Cortes – A Global Landscape of Music Therapy
  • PLUS a special performance by the Juno award-winning Toronto Mass Choir

WHY? Music is increasingly being recognized in health care communities as an effective means of care. Music care is an approach that uses music with intention, knowing that therapeutic principles of sound and music affect us and can have specific outcomes.  Music care integrates sound, silence and music into life, paying close attention to how interpersonal connections and human contact is enhanced through music associations.

WHO? MCC is for anyone who wants to learn more about the role music plays in care. Participants include allied healthcare providers, family and volunteer caregivers, care receivers, musicians, faith-based and community agencies, students and the community-at-large.
