The Music Advantage: Improve Mood, Memory and Motivation
This is a keynote FULL of Key Notes! There is no other activity we know of that activates more areas of the brain simultaneously than when we listen to music that inspires us. Quite simply, music brings meaning into moments, but on a more complex level, the different elements of music (tone, volume, tempo) impact brain function and human behaviour. For over thirty years working as a music therapist, and leading a private practice team of twenty therapists, Jennifer has witnessed this powerful resource in action in people as young as two months to 104 — transforming changes in mood, memory and motivation. This Keynote will include: • Stories from around the world of how music is bridging gaps, helping people feel less stuck, and igniting team creativity. • A synthesis of the latest research at the intersection of music and health, shared in a practical and fun way. For example: what does your music say about your personality? The answer may surprise you. • Top ‘key’ tips for using music to accentuate the positive in your life - including the power of a purposeful playlist.
