JAMMING 3: SONGWRITING

Mr. Kingman Chung (BA, MMT, RMT)

 Songwriting is one of the common therapeutic interventions that is often used in music therapy to meet the client’s needs. Music therapists can create songs for clients. These songs are created as a music tool to achieve specific goals and purposes, for instance, promoting their self-esteem, coping skills, and empowerment.

 Join us to compose our own song together and experience the power of music!

 

JAMMING 4: MUSIC & IMAGERY

Mr. Ng Wai Man (MAMT, MAMusPsy, PGDipMT, GradDip GIM, BMus, BSc, RMT-UK, RGIMT)

Listening to music is a common method for relaxation. However, if we want to achieve a more relaxed state, the use of both music and imagery can work more effectively in doing so. In this workshop, participants will experience guided imagery without music and guided imagery with music.

Participants will experience a musical journey whilst listening to a series of classical music and learning how to apply this method at home for daily relaxation.
