Description

BKCM Music Therapy presents a 2.5 hour intensive workshop as part of its Continuing Music Therapy Education (CMTE) program.

This workshop is designed to help music therapy students and professionals better serve the Hispanic population by gaining a deeper understanding of its diversity of cultures and styles of music. We will learn to identify and categorize the different songs and music styles that are most associated with each country or region. We will learn about their historical context, lyrical meaning, and potential clinical applications. We will also learn about the most prominent artists associated with each country, genre, and song. Participants will be able to identify Salsa, Bolero and Chachacha rhythms, and apply them as accompaniment to each song, and as basis for therapeutic improvisation. Attendees will be able to use this information within active music making, music listening, verbal discussion, and other therapeutic interventions. We will provide participants with an index of songs and their pertinent information to use as a resource in their work. The workshop will be a fun, lively and inclusive experiential that will leave attendees motivated to implement concepts learned right away.
