Music is a tool for better health
Come with me as I explore the health benefits of music here in our province. Whether it be an undeniable part of your history, a tool for improving your brain, a platform for advocacy or just having a time with friends – music is medicine.
We meet with a local folk artist who used music as a therapy for his cancer recovery and then learn from Dr. Ben Zendel that music can change our brain and allow us to age better. Music helps our brains stay sharp as we get older and can delay onset of dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.
We make a drum for a shed party with a local craftsman and then get to know our local music celebrities. From Juno Award Winner Amelia Curren and her advocacy “It’s Mental” a local mental partnership to Alan Doyle and his Dollar A Day – we learn why music and our health are intertwined.
What show would be complete without hearing the real thing and Chris Andrews shares his thoughts and his talents down in Logy Bay.
