An Introduction to Music Therapy
Tue 10 - Thu 12 July
Tutor: Polly Bowler


Polly Bowler has tutored chamber courses at Benslow Music for over 10 years and now brings her expertise to this new course which offers insight into the allied healthcare profession of music therapy. A mixture of talks, experiential groups and practical workshops will aid participants’ understanding of music therapy; its history; the theories that underpin it; the people it helps; and of improvisation, its predominant, musical tool. The exploration of improvisation will potentially offer participants a fresh approach to their instrumental playing as so many musicians feel safest with a sheet of music in front of them. Participants will need their own instruments. Some small percussion will also be available. Please note that the course is not providing participants with therapy, nor does it qualify participants to provide therapy as qualification requires training.
