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.
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.
