Educational Workshops and Presentations
People are naturally curious and are often seeking knowledge. This is especially true when it comes to health and mental well-being. People want to understand themselves better and know what they can do to take care of their health. However, sometimes presentations on these topics can be boring. Being a music therapist requires knowing how to provide engaging educational workshops.
As a presenter, I’ve presented both nationally and internationally. Audiences I’ve presented to include: healthcare providers, educators, and the general public. Formats have varied from hour-long presentations to full-day workshops and retreats.
The experiential element is a big part of what I offer. I do this because we learn better and retain new information when we can fully engage with the content. It helps make it more concrete. By utilizing multiple senses, I help attendees with integrating the new knowledge into their previous understanding(s).
Presentations are given in English and I customize all presentations and workshops to the needs of the organization. These events can range in length from 1 to 3 hours.
