Programme details

Many branches of science have influenced music and the human condition in cultures around the world. Science illuminates the beauty and power of music, like a diamond. This seminar series examines the ways in which humans have always relied on music to bond together, to relax and to motivate one another. It also has the power to treat diseases and disorders in surprising ways.

Learning objectives:
1. Participants develop competency in terms relevant to the biology of music
2. Participants can describe the ways in which music affects humans across their lifetime
3. Participants are introduced to research from around the world on the biology of music
4. Participants consider the ways in which science supports the advocacy of music, music education and music therapy

Topics:
1. Why does music matter — from ancient cultures to modern society
2. Why music matters in childhood development
3. Why music matters in ageing
4. Why music training matters — how musicians’ brains are different from those of non-musicians
