Music and the Mind

Roanoke Symphony Orchestra |

In this 60-minute workshop, Roanoke Symphony Orchestra musicians will demonstrate ways to engage the mind through music. Studies have shown that music can have a profound impact on brain development at all ages and help create unity within our homes, families, and neighborhoods. Participants will learn simple techniques that can be replicated at home, including ways to engage in music for the cognitive development of children, stress relief, and memory care. This engagement will include an interactive musical performance and discussion about the skills and activities you can share with loved ones at home. Come and learn ways to experience music at the next level!

Participants: 12 to as many participants as the space can accommodate
Ages: All
Value: $700.00
Requirements: Please provide a space for performance and three chairs for musicians. The performance can be inside or outside, but inside is preferable. If outside, an indoor back-up plan is needed in case of inclement weather.
