Components of Healing Music: Dynamics

June 18th, 2010 · No Comments · Music and the Mind-Body, Music Healing

When choosing healing music for yourself or someone else, one important thing to consider is the dynamic level.  Dynamics are simply the loudness or softness of the music and are defined with Italian words such as those to the left.

Of course if you or a loved one are feeling ill you are not going to want to have loud or boisterous music playing at the bedside.  Dynamics are typically marked with levels ranging from very, very soft to very, very loud.  Most music utilizes multiple dynamic levels as the dynamic level is rarely static for long.  We also use the “crescendo,” which means gradually getting louder and the “decrescendo” which means gradually getting softer.  Dynamics are one the many facets of all music that help it to be expressive, interesting, and in this case, healing.

Please feel free to comment or ask a question.  If you’d like to know more, please download the 60-minute workshop I did on “The Healing Power of Music.”    Music is complex, but understanding the individual components can help you to choose or create your own healing music more intentionally!
