The Significance of Music


•   Communicates both with lyrics and beyond words
•   Tells our stories
•   Moves us to laughter, to tears & to dance
•   Accompanies important ceremonies
•   Provides a gateway to memories
Consider this piece of music. Listen with
your eyes closed and allow it to tell you a
story…
  • What emotions did the piece evoke?
  • What images come to mind?
  • What story does it awaken in you?
What memories does this piece evoke for
               you?
Now focus on the physiological response in
your body to this piece of music…

• What did you notice your body doing?
• What did the music remind you of?
Healing Benefits of Music

•   Reduces pain
•   Increases oxygen levels in the blood
•   Steadies respiration and heart rhythm
•   Reduces anxiety and fear
•   Reduces nausea
•   Provides a focus different from hospital machines
•   Boosts immune response
Pain Reliever with No Damaging Side
  Effects

At St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, patients in critical
  care units listen to classical music.

 “Half an hour of music produced the same effect as
  ten milligrams of valium.”
How does music heal?
Distraction is the divided attention of an
individual or group from the chosen
object of attention onto the source of
distraction.
Entrainment or "brainwave
synchronization," is any practice that
aims to cause brainwave frequencies to
fall into step with a periodic stimulus
having a frequency corresponding to the
intended brain-state for example, to
induce sleep.
Distraction

A loud repetitive sound sends a constant signal to
   the cortex, masking input from other senses like
   vision, touch, and smell.
Frequency of Vibrations

• High pitched sounds increase stimulation
• Low frequency sounds are grounding
Principles of the Music Practitioner

• Patient is the center of focus
• Intent to provide an environment for healing
• Whole person concept of mind, body, spirit, and
  emotion
Holistic Health

“Outside of sleep, breathing, nutrition and to some
  extent exercise. . . probably no behavior comes close
  to the power and diversity of music in eliciting
  homeodynamic shifts."

Mark Ryder
The Rhythmic Language of Health and Disease
Why Live Music?
• Responsive to the changing state of the patient
• Vibration of live instrument
• Human connection
Four Categories of Clients

1.   Acutely ill Rhythmic Music
2.   Chronically ill All Styles
3.   Children and Elders Familiar Music
4.   Actively Dying Arrhythmic Music
Music Thanatology

The delivery of music has everything to do with leading
  a patient from a feeling of safety to openness and
  release.

Letting go is some of the hardest work we can do,
  either as a patient or as a musician.

Therese Schroeder-Sheker
Chalice of Repose Project
Vibrations & Cancer




  The pictures above were taken while a xylophone was used over a
period of fourteen minutes playing the Ionian Scale (C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C,D)
"The human voice carries something in its vibration
  that makes it more powerful than any musical
  instrument: consciousness….



 …It appeared that the cancer cells were not able to
 support a progressive accumulation of vibratory
 frequencies and were destroyed."

                                        Fabien Maman
I AM MUSIC Most ancient of the arts. I am more than
   ancient; I am eternal. Even before life began upon
   this earth, I was here in the winds and the waves.
   When the first trees and flowers and grasses
   appeared, I was among them. And when people
   came, I at once became the most delicate, most
   subtle and most powerful medium for the expression
   of emotions…
…When people were little better than beasts, I
 influenced them for their good. In all ages, I have
 inspired people with hope, kindled their love, given a
 voice to their joys, cheered them on to valorous
 deeds, and soothed them in times of despair. I have
 played a great part in the drama of life, whose end
 and purpose are the complete perfection of human
 nature…
…Through my influence, humankind has been uplifted,
  sweetened and refined. With the aid of mankind, I
  have become a Fine Art; I have a myriad of voices
  and instruments. I am in the hearts of all people and
  on their tongues in all lands, among all peoples; the
  ignorant and unlettered know me, not less than the
  rich and the learned…
..For I speak to all people in a language that all
   understand. Even the deaf hear me, if they but listen
   to the voices of their own souls. I am the food of
   love. I have taught gentleness and peace; and I have
   led people to heroic deeds. I comfort the lonely, and
   I harmonize the discord of crowds. I am a necessary
   luxury to all I AM MUSIC.

Editor's Notes

  1. Play Sylvia Woods ’ “The Legend”
  2. Play “Danny Boy”
  3. Play Sylvia Woods ’ “In the Forest”
  4. -Barbara Crowe Former president National Association of Music Therapy
  5. Toning experiment – where do you feel these sounds in your body? High pitch in the head, low pitch in the belly, trunk, legs. Next time you are tired while driving, use a high EEEE sound to stimulate blood flow in the brain.
  6. If you listen to upbeat music when you are feeling angry or sad, the initial response is dissonance. Instead, practitioner will start where the client is and then move in the desired direction.
  7. Rhythmic music to help steady heart, respiration Pain relief, nausea, responsive to symptoms (COPD, slow rhythmic breaths)
  8. "The structure quickly disorganized. Fourteen minutes was enough time to explode the cell when I used these nine different frequencies", says Maman.
  9. The most dramatic influence on the cells came from the human voice when Maman sang the same scale into the cells. In this experiment the cancer cells experienced a total explosion within nine minutes.
