Online Events

Music and Wellness Workshop

Wednesday, July 15, 2020
2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
Online via Zoom (link will be provided to all registrants by email)

Music can help reduce anxiety and connect with loved ones — something many people need right now during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this workshop, participants will learn mindfulness techniques that utilize music to help them find a deeper state of relaxation.

They will also write messages for their loved ones and learn how to turn these messages into short, meaningful songs to send to their friends and family. During these activities, participants will learn about the biological and neurological reasons that make music such a versatile and useful tool to reduce anxiety and form social connections.

Daniel Arun Robinson is currently the music therapist on staff at Toronto Grace Health Centre, serving patients and families in palliative care, complex continuing care, and acute rehabilitation. Daniel received his training in music therapy and psychotherapy at Wilfrid Laurier University. His current research explores the effects of music therapy and psychotherapy on the mental health of post-secondary students. Prior to his career in mental health, Daniel worked as an opera singer and voice coach across North America.
