Custom music-facilitated group experiences
M3 Music Therapy can partner with you from the ground up in using music for a major event – e.g. retreat, annual meeting, training session, industry conference or a succession of events – to create greater focus for participants; deeper connection; re-energize and, of course, reduce stress. We use both passive (e.g. listening and relaxation) and active music (e.g. playing instruments, singing or movement) to create a fun, memorable group experience that can range from relaxing to energized.
Start with a large group music-making activity to kick off the day. At strategic transition points, use music listening combined with lyric analysis to help refocus, engage and prepare attendees for the next topic. Close the day with group relaxation or if more energy is required combine group music-making with movement. Music is a whole brain activity. Making it an integral part of an event will support attendees in their focus, energy, engagement and connection. Custom music-facilitated experiences are built to order.
How does music fit in the workplace?
Making music with others, whether as a trained professional or a non-musician, requires many of the same skills needed to be an integral part of community: listening, paying attention, working together, taking risk. It is a powerful and non-threatening tool that can break down barriers to communication. Experiences can be used for team building; creating environments of trust, self-expression, wellness and building bridges. Music facilitated and music-therapy based experiences engage people and build community, particularly when led by a skilled facilitator.
