Description

Music Therapy Week: Neurological Choirs Workshop

The Centre for Brain Research and Music Therapy New Zealand are pleased to announce this Music Therapy Week event, hosted by Prof. Suzanne Purdy, Alison Talmage RMTh and Shari Storie RMTh in conjunction with Music Therapy New Zealand.

There is growing national and international interest in professional practice and research in the area of singing for people with communication difficulties related to a neurological condition, such as stroke, aphasia, Parkinson's disease, dementia and traumatic brain injury. We warmly invite fellow practitioners, choir leaders and potential choir leaders to a stimulating day which will include skill sharing, research updates, networking, discussion of direct, consultative and interdisciplinary (music therapy and speech-language therapy) approaches, and an interactive session with the CeleBRation Choir, a Centre for Brain Research initiative, a social-singing group for people with neurological conditions.

We will meet at the University of Auckland Tamaki Innovation Campus, 261 Morrin Road. Use gate 1 (the first entrance after the roundabout) and visitor parking. We will meet in building 730, room 268. Building 730 is the first building from Morrin Road, take the stairs or lift to level 2. To find room 268 walk through the main foyer, the reception will be on your left, what looks like a library will be on your right. Head towards the stairs at the back of the foyer, go past the cafe on your left, then turn left. Go down this small atrium and you will then find room 268, one of three small lecture theatres, on the right.

A light morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided as part of your registration.

We look forward to having you join us for this exciting day together!
