Our unique and inovative courses on music therapy will open a new inspiring field for you - in the way of using the music as a deep, powerful tool and also in a new approach in playing your music instruments.
MUSIC AS A CREATIVE TOOL IN MUSIC THERAPY
Music can work wonders in situations where other therapeutic methods are ineffective. To that end, we focus not on the music which we have learned, but the music the client really needs at that moment and let “flow”.
We will explore the questions of how to intuit which music is needed in any given situation and attuning ourselves to the audience who will be listening, or people who are open to our therapy work. We will learn how to apply a musical instrument as a transforming and healing tool, entering those delicate areas of non-verbal creative communication which can lead to entering our more “transcendental levels”.
Whatever instrument you play, with the help of this workshop, you can discover entirely new approaches to working with your clients through the path of inspired music therapy.
Conducted by Ivo Sedlacek and Stepanka Cizkova
EXPRESSIVE MUSIC THERAPY
Expressive Music Therapy” seminars are the result of an innovative collaboration between two leading Czech music therapists: Matej Lipsky and Ivo Sedlacek.
Our holistic approach fuses classical analytic music therapy and psychotherapy, with concepts of transpersonal music therapy and the transformative joy of free-form musical expression.
Workshops focusing on interaction with musical instruments will show how sensory stimulation (auditory, visual and tactile sensations) can enervate the brain and expand perceptual motor skills. Musical performances on a variety of instruments by Ivo Sedlacek will ignite ideas for enhancing attention and recognition.
While improving a person’s interaction with the outside world is important, we believe that music’s greatest potential lies in opening up pathways to self-awareness and inner discovery. The experiential aspect of engaging with inspired live music creates instant joy and harmony to ones psyche and inner structures. Well-planned performance sessions can be inspirational to all present, and can offer long-term benefits to people who suffer from mental emotional or physical afflictions – as well as those without special needs.
Ultimately, our “Expressive Music Therapy” courses should appeal to a wide range of audiences. We enjoy bringing new approaches and insights to music therapists, professionals in the social services, students, as well as the general public.
