강좌 소개

Did you ever wonder how music works? This course provides free video, audio and journal resources that explain six basic principles about how music can influence individual and community health and wellbeing. From biology and neuroscience, to psychotherapy and politics, the ways we engage with music can make all the difference. Music has always played an integral role in the lives of individuals and communities all around the globe. This course explores the ways that music can be used to achieve positive changes with a particular emphasis on the most vulnerable persons. Six different understandings will be explored, each with their own set of values and assumptions. The greatest thinkers in each approach believe that their way of explaining the power of music is right, but we will show that understanding music in its entirety delivers the best results in each unique circumstance. Once we understand the various ways that music can change the world, we can make informed decisions about how best to employ its extraordinary power. Learners who engage in this MOOC can expect to both deepen and broaden their understanding of how music can be used with individuals, groups and communities. Specifically: • To distinguish between how music works on the body, in the brain, through the unconscious, for bonding, as political action and in reflecting culture, • To design practical programs that utilise music to support individuals, groups and communities based on examples shared in the ‘on-site’ case studies.

This was a wonderfully developed overview of music therapy. The instructors were knowledgeable and their interviews engaging to watch. The plethora of information between the videos, writings and articles were second to none. Well done! Clearly a lot of effort on the part of the instructors. My only difficulty was that for the final assignment, I had so many things running through my head that I had to narrow down and focus what I wanted to present. I could have written a dozen different scenarios with all the information I gathered from this course. It was well worth my time and money for the certificate. I would love to take a followup course.

This course is extremely interesting, complete and deepens so many aspects of music and musicking!

it provides a lot of extremely accurate and recent literature and testimonies, and opens your mind to so many aspects and possibilities for applying care through music, both individually and collectively. Every dimension, from the psychoanalytic to the socio-political one, is integrated and presented with seriousness and completeness. It also invites you to deepen the topics and combine them with your personal experience.

For not native speaker it's maybe a bit challenging but it is a challenge worth dealing with.

I really enjoyed reading and listening to the articles about music. Some of them, to me, seem as common sense, but the extensive readings showed me about a world that I have yet to see. I listen to music from different cultures, but now I have a better understanding about the music and its meaning and form. The music of other culture's diversity contributed to the making of the world. That is, a jig saw puzzle of different communities joined together to form on great world. Thank you.

True to it's title, the course comprehensively covers all the possible ways music affects us. Studying it became one of the reasons that triggered me into Musicology. I not only went on to graduate with a master's degree in Musicology, now my professional life revolves around music in education and wellbeing. An excellent course; strongly recommend it to anyone who's exploring ways to delve deeper into music beyond performance.

Este curso me ha parecido sensacional. Muy útil para tener una idea global sobre los beneficios que puede tener la música sobre nosotros. Aporta una selección de recursos de gran valor, tales como artículos, vídeos... Sus creadores se han esmerado en la confección de este curso estructurando muy bien los contenidos, preparando con esmero las actividades, etc.

The course is inspiring :-) The topics are interesting, and the learning materials are well designed by questions and answers, I like the part of Pause & Reflect. The part of quiz is sooooo good, when you submit your answers, you can read a detailed analysis of the correct solutions, that is very helpful.
