What is the correlation between mindfulness and music? Part 2.
Welcome back to the second part this two-part episode with my guest, Orit Amy Elyon Pemberton, Ph.D. I am honored to have Dr. Orit Pemberton as my guest. Dr. Pemberton reveals how tones and silence affectes mental and physical expressions as an art, when musicians use their instrument to produce musical communication. In addition, Orit uncovers how musicians overcome challenges through movement and the awareness of being. Muscians must use awareness to guide them through emotions. This concept can be used by anyone. Dr. Pemberton points out that “ Music was the largest form of communication”, during the pandemic. Music has brings a sense of unity. Or it’s favorite saying is “Keep the music flowing. “
