Music and the Brain: (Focus on Children)

Ian Vayne wants to share how music not only brings beauty to your life but improves you health and brain fitness.

Children who learn music have shown startling increases in their grades especially in mathematics and language. They have also shown themselves to be “better students,” more relaxed attentive, etc. College outcomes are also better for these students.

You will learn about the extensive research of how music affects the brain and why a particular syllabus can bring about significant increases in children's IQ's and the areas you can expect academic improvement in. You will also learn how music reduces stress at a biological level and improves “mood state,” making your child a more happier and productive student.

The “Music and the Brain,” program lasts one hour and includes a power point lecture, a video of showing the original research and then a hands on audience participation time.

Time is allowed for questions though sometimes there are a lot.

 

Music and the Brain:

Recreational Music Making: (Focus on adults)

Ian Vayne wants to share the beauty and healing power of music with others.

93% of Americans over the age of 18 are absolutely convinced they are not musical.

You will learn that you “can,” make music and that music is one of the healthiest activities you can participate in. You will learn about the extensive research projects conducted by the “Mind Body Wellness Institute,” and how music affects biology and the brain and how you can participate in a non – threatening way.

This program begins with a power point presentation followed by a short video of classes using the techniques. There is then an audience participation activity to give you hands on experience with recreational music making.

The “Recreational Music Making,” program lasts one hour. Time is allowed for questions.

 

 

Music and the Brain:

Autism:

There have been many studies of the effects of music and autism. The part of the brain associated with music making is usually undamaged in autistic people often resulting in heightened interest and response.

The part of the brain that develops with music is fully functional in most autistic students. Children who learn music experience I.Q. raising in the areas that concern mathematics, language and spacial reasoning. They also enjoy a reduction in mood disturbance making their lives more enjoyable.

Ian Vayne wants to share with you how someone with autism can benefit emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically from learning music.

This presentation begins with a power point that is very interactive. You will learn about and experience through simulation the obstacles autistic students encounter. You will through a hands-on activity also learn how a specific syllabus deals with these obstacles. You will learn how the biology of the brain and body are affected by music making and where to expect intellectual and social improvement.

This program lasts for one hour and includes some time for questions though there is often a lot.

 

 

Music and the Brain:

Brain Dysfunction: (Focus on Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, etc)

This presentation opens with the “Recreational Music Making,” presentation but offers additional insights into specific areas people may be seeking support in.

The additional material includes specific research and successes with music and brain dysfunction.

This program begins with a power point presentation. There is then an audience participation activity to give you hands on experience. This includes recreational music making and syllabus construction to work with specific needs.

This program lasts one hour. Time is allowed for questions.
