Music and Healing
Learn the ways that music can affect hospital patients, their families, and the doctors and nurses who care for them. We will discuss how to determine appropriate music for particular areas of a hospital and for different age patients, as well as how to use live music to interact with patients and offer hope.

Collaborative Worship: A hands on workshop
Learn the art of collaborating with various musicians and instruments to create worship music together. We will use lead sheets of hymns and worship songs to work out parts for each participant.
