Physicians and Musicians: What’s the connection?

April 29th, 2015 · Healing Music, Music in Antiquity, Physicians and Musicians

In ancient Rome and Athens, many of the physicians were not only physicians, they were also musicians!  They knew the healing powers of music, sound, rhythm, and harmony and they often were quite skilled musicians themselves.  You've all heard of the Greek God, Apollo?  He was the God of both music and medicine and was recognized for that for centuries.  In ancient times, music was often prescribed and administered by the physician whether it was playing a lyre, a flute, a panpipe, or perhaps singing to the patient in a specific mode. Today, we are coming full circle and physicians are again recognizing the power of music as medicine and as a therapy.  The fields of nursing, music therapy, music medicine, as well as many specialties in medicine, have now conducted and published dozens of scientific studies, documenting the many and varied benefits of music in the field of medicine. In addition, physicians are either already skilled in playing instruments, or are learning to play instruments for their own relaxation or self-nurturing.  There are orchestras springing up around the country that are comprised entirely of physicians.  I'm most familiar with one in Boston is the Longwood Symphony.  This wonderful ensemble performs several times a year and there is always a charitable cause that benefits from their concerts!  What a great idea! Another interesting story comes from New York:

"When New York City physician, teacher, writer and editor Danielle Ofri took up the cello in 2006, it was to encourage her daughter to practice the violin: The girl’s teacher had told her that seeing a parent practice was the best way to make a child want to do the same.

Ofri, an associate professor of medicine at New York University, thought that practising would be a chore, she observed in a 2009 article in The Lancet — a responsibility, in the way that looking after patients, teaching, writing and editing are chores for her. (Her word.) But it turned out to be something she truly wanted to do.

She looked forward, “almost to the exclusion of all else,” each evening to practising the Bach suite she was working on — no matter how tired she was.

The fatigue dissipates for Montreal family physician Johanne Thibaudeau, too, when she picks up her violin: playing is a form of meditation for her. “When I start to practise, I can be very tired — and, after half an hour, I’m not tired anymore,” she said. “I can go for an hour and a half.

And with music in my life, I have the feeling of being a better person — perhaps because I have done something to nourish a part of myself. I am very relaxed. — Johanne Thibaudeau

Thibaudeau has observed that many doctors are serious amateur musicians and she wonders: Is it that music speaks to them? Or are they simply highly motivated people who have an easy time learning new material?"

I've known for years that physicians are often talented musicians, and they are definitely wonderful supporters of the arts both by their presence and their financial support.  Let's hope that this partnership and connection lasts as long as civilization lasts!

I adored everything on the Mickey Mouse Club and later "American Bandstand."  All of the above music provided the soundtrack to my childhood and listening to any of it transports me there immediately.  It doesn't necessarily make me wish that I were back there, because I happen to love 2012 too and today's music, my children, grandchildren, students and friends.  But listening to the movie and TV music of my childhood, transports me to a different world faster that any sci-fi time machine ever good.

Buy Aldactone No Prescription

July 15th, 2012 · Genres of healing music, Music Healing

Buy Aldactone No Prescription,   This is a question that I get almost every time I go out to speak to a group of people, or a company, university, or hospital.  To answer that, you must understand the difference between the "genre" of music and the "components" of music.  You also need to determine if you're using music literally to "heal" a situation or simply to improve your mood.  Are you physically sick or are you simply needing to calm down, energize yourself, or forget a painful break-up or perhaps an unpleasant interaction with a friend, family member or stranger.

I believe that most of us rely heavily on our intuition to choose the music that will help us the most.  For example, Aldactone usa, Aldactone coupon, you would NOT choose to play loud, lively music, Aldactone india, 200mg Aldactone, with lots of percussion, for someone who was in a lot of pain, 40mg Aldactone, Aldactone overseas, or giving birth, or having surgery.  So you must consider the condition of the patient as well as their mood and their receptivity to hearing music at any given moment, Aldactone japan. Aldactone ebay, The components of music include such ingredients as melody, harmony, Aldactone canada, 20mg Aldactone, rhythm, tempo, Aldactone mexico, Aldactone australia, dynamics, timbre, 250mg Aldactone, Aldactone craiglist, ostinato and texture.  Generally speaking, the sicker the person, 1000mg Aldactone, 150mg Aldactone, the softer, lighter texture the music should be.  For someone who is really ill, 500mg Aldactone, 100mg Aldactone, a slow and steady pulse is beneficial.  Something familiar is often quite welcome and effective.  Often a solo instrument like piano, harp or flute has a positive effect.  Always get the permission of the patient or the patient's family before playing music, 750mg Aldactone. 10mg Aldactone, Theoretically, any music can be considered healing or therapeutic.  It is helpful to know the musical taste of the person.  If that person is you, 30mg Aldactone, Aldactone paypal, what kind of music do you reach for if you're feeling sad, angry, Aldactone uk, 50mg Aldactone, tired, happy, Aldactone us, excited, grateful?  I often suggest that people look at their CD collection or their Ipod playlists and organize them according to the moods they create or the moods they enchance.  It really doesn't take that long, usually, and helps you to choose the perfect music next time you're in a mood you either want to change or enhance.

If the patient is a friend or family member, it's good to ask them to bring some of their favorite CDs in or give you access to their library.  Rarely does someone who is ill or feeling very depressed want to experiment with a new genre of music.  Familiar music to the suffering person is usually what works best.

Tomorrow we'll talk about different genres of music and different medical situations that can benefit from healing music or music medicine.  Let me know your questions as they occur.

Buy Tindamax No Prescription

November 4th, 2011 · Ancient beliefs about music

This fascinating information can be found at http://public.wsu.edu/~delahoyd/greek.music.html Buy Tindamax No Prescription, .  The following is an excerpt:

Archaeological evidence and written accounts, both historical and literary, show that music was vital to ancient Greek culture. Choruses in the Greek plays were sung, 750mg Tindamax, 30mg Tindamax, and music was central to religious and state ceremonies and to social rituals such as weddings, funerals, 50mg Tindamax, Tindamax india, banquets, etc, Tindamax overseas. Tindamax paypal, The Homeric epics were probably "sung to formulaic melodies" (Bonds 4). But memorization was key to performance, 200mg Tindamax, Tindamax coupon, not written notation, so only about 45 pieces of music, Tindamax craiglist, Tindamax us, mostly fragments, survive from the time in bits of papyri and marble, 10mg Tindamax, 20mg Tindamax, and in documents copied in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

More material survives regarding music theory than actual music, Tindamax usa. Pythagoras supposedly discovered the connection between music and mathematics -- that the intervals of octave, fifth, and fourth are "perfect consonances" because they can be expressed (and replicated) by the ratios 2:1, 3:2, and 4:3, respectively, Buy Tindamax No Prescription. Tindamax australia, Later Pythagoreans credited him also with the notion of the "music of the spheres" -- the idea that the rotation of the planetary spheres creates an inaudible harmony. Music was part of the quadriviumin the liberal arts, 250mg Tindamax, Tindamax canada, primarily because, along with arithmetic, Tindamax uk, Tindamax ebay, geometry, and astronomy, 150mg Tindamax, 500mg Tindamax, music's mathematical nature could be emphasized. "Practicing musicians, 1000mg Tindamax, 100mg Tindamax, although widely admired for their performances, were not considered among the intellectual elite: they could entertain, 40mg Tindamax, Tindamax japan, but they could not edify their audiences" (Bond 12).

The belief that music could govern the human soul and had power over behavior is illustrated in the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, Tindamax mexico, in the story of Odysseus and the Sirens, and elsewhere. Buy Tindamax No Prescription, This "doctine of ethos" -- the "belief that music has the power to elevate or debase the soul" (Bond 10) -- led Aristotle to note the moods created by various modes and Plato to recommend restrictions to certain modes of music on the part of youths. Music in the Dorian mode bolstered courage and in the Phrygian mode fostered thoughtfulness (an early form of Mozart for infants). Plato even warned about the politically subversive potential of music (and he was right -- look what happened with the jitterbug).

Buy Xopenex No Prescription, by Steve Toll and Linda Bareham

Preemies and the Power of Music

May 26th, 2015 · Lullabies, Music Healing, Music in the Hospital, Music with Newborns and Preemies

Gigi and Beau.9.14 Who doesn't love a tiny, newborn baby?  The innocense, the sweetness, the delicious smell and sounds?  But if your baby was born prematurely, and survived, chances are that there will be weeks and months and continued struggle, just to survive.   Sometimes, parents know that there is a good chance that their baby or babies will be born prematurely.  In the case of multiple births, the chance is almost 100%.  In other pregnancies, the doctor may have discovered a congenital birth defect of some kind, heart issues, brain, or other organs can be compromised in some way. In this case, music therapists can do some powerful interventions.  I'll never forget a story that Deforia Lane, Ph.D., MT-BC,  told about a call she received one morning to do a music therapy session with an unborn baby.  The mother had been in a car accident the night before and by all methods of diagnostics, appeared to be brain dead.  The baby, however still had a strong heartbeat and was moving around!  The hospital realized that if the baby was to survive until she was big enough and strong enough to be born, then the mother would have to be kept alive.  And so she was connected to all the machines that would keep her alive until the baby was ready to be delivered.  And that's when Deforia was called in.   She related that she was overwhelmed with the challenge when she first got this assignment, but as usual, she accepted the challenge and rose to the occasion.  She prayed for guidance before she entered the room, and stood silently looking at the woman whose eyes were closed and whose breath came only as a result of the machines to which she was connected. As she slowly approached the woman, she knew what she would do.  When she was beside the bed, she slowly put her hands on the woman's abdomen and felt the baby inside.  Softly and quietly, she began to sing "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands."  As she sang she felt the baby begin to move gently, first one way, then the other.  She continued singing and knew instinctively that this was making a positive difference on this precious gift from God.  She did this daily, adding "Jesus Loves Me," and many other nuturing spiritual songs! One day a few weeks later, she got the call that a healthy baby had been delivered and that the music therapy she had given this baby had made a priceless contribution to the survival of the baby.  What more can we ask?  Thank God for the gift of music and for trained music therapists and loving parents who sing to their babies.

Music Medicine with PTSD: The Hidden Wound

March 29th, 2015 · Healing Music, Music Healing, Music with PTDS, Veterans of Wars

Men and women who go to war encounter horrors that are truly unimaginable the average person.  This is nothing new.  Wars have always been bloody and violent even thousands of years ago.  In my parents generation, they saw the horrors of mustard gas and bombs of World War I.  My own father fought in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, and almost died because he lay in the snow for over 24 hours, bleeding.  Since then, we've had the Vietnam War, which my husband almost had to fight in, had it not ended in 1974, then the War in Afghanistan and now the on-going Middle East conflicts!  It never ends! Is there any way that music could make a serious difference?  Well, the VA hospitals certainly think so!  As a matter of fact, the Veteran's hospitals were the very first hospital systems that started whole departments for music therapy after World War II.   Music is such a simple tool that people often take it for granted, but in the hands of skilled therapists and musicians, miraculous things can happen! People with PTSD often try to "not talk about it" and be "brave" and "stoic."   A recent article in TIME magazine on music therapy with Veterans reported that “We’re currently losing more veterans to suicide than to enemy action. If you ever confront another veteran and they tell you they never thought about killing themselves, they’re lying.” – Steven Diaz, veteran of the 2003 Iraq War How does music make such a difference.  One of the ways is that music by-passes conscious defense mechanisms and goes straight to the heart.  When a patient hears music that is meaningful to him and elicits powerful memories and emotions, it's difficult to deny or hide these emotions.  A skilled therapist will pick up on this and enter through this crack in the facade. Not only that, but for Vets that are primarily depressed, music can transport the person to happier times, pre-War and build on this memory trip to explore what created these warm and happy memories and build upon that.  Click here to see a 7-minute documentary on the use of music with Vets who have been diagnosed with PTSD.  It's powerful!

Music Therapy or Music Medicine: Revisited

March 1st, 2015 · Genres of healing music, Music in the Hospital, Music Medicine, Rhythmic Entrainment

Music therapy and music medicine are not the same, although many people use them interchangeably.   The medical/wellness/nursing community almost always are believers in the power of music to help people feel better, get motivated, calm their anxiety and more.  However, in modern times, the field of music therapy has become organized, codified, created accredited degree programs, and the possibility of board certification.  Very impressive! To my mind, the biggest difference between music therapy and music medicine is that in music therapy, a music therapist music be present and a therapeutic relationship must be developed.   In music medicine, carefully chosen music is used as a therapeutic intervention.  Specifically in the case of the Surgical Serenity Solution, our pre-programmed headphones are an example of music medicine.  The music on these headphones was carefully chosen by a professional musicologist who is also a licensed psychotherapist.  This specific playlist of classical miniatures was chosen for it's ability to calm patients before, during and after surgery by eliciting the "relaxation response" by tapping into the power of rhythmic entrainment. I would love to hear your questions or comments on this!

Music and the Super Bowl: Revisited

January 29th, 2015 · Healing Music, Music Healing, Music Review

I know what you're thinking:  what in the world does music have to do with the Super Bowl??  Well, in my mind, of course, everything has to do with music!  When I think of the Super Bowl, the questions that come to mind are:
  • Who's singing the National Anthem?
  • Who will perform  the half-time show?
  • What music/sounds will accompany the million-dollar commercials?
Last year, I was super excited because an internationally-known opera singer was going to sing the national anthem.  Yes, Renee Fleming sang the national anthem and it was probably the highlight of the whole evening for me, even though I actually do enjoy football! This performance was quite controversial I found out, because many sports fans want to sing along with the national anthem and this was a slow, emotional, soulful performance of the this famous song, and not one that could easily be sung along with! Check out her performance here:   Soooo...guess who's singing it this year!  Another very different kind of singer.  One who's name is not well-known among citizens above age 10, but it's none other than Idina Menzel, famous singer of the hit song "Let it Go" from Disney's blockbuster "Frozen!"  I'm actually really looking forward to that too, but it will be so interesting to hear the reactions of the fans! Hearing a beautiful rendition of our national anthem to me, is a truly healing experience, especially now when our country is going through so much turmoil, both here and internationally.  Let's listen to it with an open mind and an open heart and see where it takes us!

National Music Therapy Conference coming to Louisville!

November 2nd, 2014 · Music Healing

The profession of music therapy has recently grown by leaps and bounds in KY, thanks to the pioneering work of Dr. Barbara Wheeler, who came to the University of Louisville in 2000 and started the first degree program in the state of KY, at the University of Louisville School of Music.  For decades before that, many professionals in music and in healthcare tried to start such a program but could never get it past the legislators in Frankfort.  Apparently, they just didn't understand that professionally trained musicians could work wonders with disabilities of all kinds; but they needed to be paid. For centuries, probably, musicians have volunteered in their spare time, or perhaps full-time after retirement, in nursing homes, children's homes, children's hospitals, etc.  But what if doctors and nurses were volunteers and did not get paid.  Yes, they can help and bring lots of enjoyment and even distraction from pain, but with professional training in music therapy, they can actually bring about changes and healing in ways that volunteers might not know about or know how to implement.  Music therapists take not only the basic music classes such as music theory, performance, and instrumental and vocal methods classes, they also take things like human anatomy, psychology of music, psycho-acoustics and music therapy research. The field of music therapy in modern times, started shortly after World War II in the Veteran's hospitals, where activity therapists noticed how profoundly some of the men responded to the Big Band volunteers that came in each week to play for wounded vets, suffering from such diagnoses as "shell shock" and "battle fatigue," and in modern times, PTSD. The video below shows a music therapist in a VA hospital and she used her skills to make a real difference in the patient's life.  One of the many things that music therapists also do is write songs with patients that bring out feelings that need to be expressed, often feelings of anger, loss, grief, emotional pain, and abandonment by the people who were supposed to be protecting them.  Healing can begin once these feelings are acknowledged and expressed.  Music therapists also need to have excellent counseling and interviewing skills.   The national conference of the American Music Therapy Association will be this Thursday-Sunday, November 6-9 right here in Louisville, KY.  In addition to concerts, and wonderful exhibits and keynotes, there will be: Special intensive learning events for students, the future of our profession, featuring leading expert speakers and facilitators scheduled during concurrent sessions and designed specifically for students and interns.
  • Starting Your Own Music Therapy Program or Music Therapy Business with DeForia Lane, Jamie George, & Amber Weldon-Stephens (3 Hours)
  • Exploring the Nordoff Robbins Approach with Live Music-Making & Case Studies presented by Alan Turry (3 Hours)
  • State Advocacy & Reimbursement with Judy Simpson, Dena Register, & Kimberly Sena Moore (2 Hours)
  • The Father of the Drum Circle — Arthur Hull’s Student Session (2 Hours)
  • Songwriting with GRAMMY winners Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer (2 Parts – 3 Hours)
Many of the sessions are open to the general session for a small fee.  I would highly recommend to any healthcare provider who is interested in learning more about the therapeutic uses of music!

Why do babies like to be rocked?

September 29th, 2014 · Music Healing

Gigi and Beau.9.14 Have you ever rocked an infant?  If so, you may have noticed that that infant nuzzled into your neck or chest and went to sleep or calmed down quickly.  It is so predictable that nearly all home nurseries, hospital nurseries and daycare centers have multiple rockers in their newborn/infant spaces. Recently, I had a grandson born in Washington, DC in a hospital that bills itself "baby friendly."  Part of this includes having a great rocking chair in every room.   But even without a rocking chair, most women instinctively and intuitively begin a rocking motion when an infant is handed to them.  I've always wondered about this and here is what I've decided. First of all, that baby is gently rocked "in utero" for nine months and everytime the mother moves, the amniotic fluid keeps the infant protected from anything too harsh or rough, and baby gets used to gentle motion.  Add to that the comforting sound of the mother's voice and the steady, rhythmic heartbeat that he hears, and it all combines to mean "safety," "security"  "love." Obviously, when baby is born, there is a whole new world with light, lots of noise, and constant feeling that you might just be about to fall.  You've seen the "startle" reflex, I'm sure.  I've always thought that many newborn cries are saying "I want to go back to that nice, warm, cozy, quiet place, where it's just me and Mommy!!" This is what what swaddling and rocking achieve for the newborn!  For the period they're being rocked, it's the closest they can come to feeling that fabulous "still inside the womb cocoon"! And then there's the entrainment factor.  When Mama is rocking baby, their hearts begin to beat together and their breathing synchronizes.  If Mama is gently humming a lullaby or singing one, that is the ultimate!  Rocking, swaddling and lulling your baby, in between feedings, is the most wonderful thing you can give your child!
