Music As An Effective Form of Therapy

An infant in the pediatric intensive care unit is soothed by lullabies sung in tempo with the rhythm of her breathing.

A toddler recovering from surgery marches to the beat of a drum in his room, encouraging him to walk, unknowingly promoting healing. A teen freestyles, expressing his battle with cancer as he transforms the unit into a recording studio.

Music therapy may appear simply as a thoughtful service used for entertainment in a clinical setting, but it’s actually an evidenced-based form of therapy.

Lage and Eldridge To Perform in Athens

The phrase “child prodigy” occurs often in written accounts of jazz guitarist Julian Lage, who honed his six-string skills while most of his peers were watching cartoons.

You may recall Lage as the subject of the short 1996 documentary Jules at Eight, or from the then-13-year-old’s duet with vibraphonist Gary Burton at the 2000 Grammy Awards.

Weimar Germany is Elegant Music

The music of decadent but elegant Weimar Germany and of the Great American Songbook has been revived by Max Raabe and Palast Orchester, a Berlin-based music group that will tour the eastern United States in early March.

Raabe’s passion for these almost century-old musical traditions was first roused by a record he found in his parents’ cupboard, a humorous instrumental called “I’m Crazy About Hilde”; this inspired him to start collecting 78’s in flea markets and junk shops.
