Carried out independently by professionals, who are not qualified music therapists, like relaxation therapists, physicians or (natural) scientists. A previous consultation, or collaboration, with a certified music therapist can be helpful ( Register, 2002 ). In recent years, significant progress has been made in both the research and clinical application of music as a form of treatment. It has valuable therapeutic properties, suitable for the treatment of several diseases. The term music medicine” is used as a term for the therapeutic use of music in medicine ( Bradt et al., 2015 , 2016 ), to be able to differentiate it from music therapy.” MM stands for a medical, physiological and physical evaluation of the use of music. If someone listens to his or her favorite music, this is sometimes also considered as a form of music medicine. MM deliberately differs from music therapy as part of psychiatric care or psychotherapy. It is important to stress out that the term Music Therapy MT” should not be used for any kind of treatment involving music, although there is without doubt a relationship between MT and MM. What all of them have in common is the focus on a scientifically, artistically or clinically based approach to music. Jean’s work is popular both here and abroad, represented in many private and corporate collections. In addition to Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery. Jean Feeney’s work has been exhibited at other leading galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from Jean’s studio and, like all Red Rag Scottish Art and Contemporary Art, it can be shipped worldwide. Donald Provan has had several solo shows and widely exhibited in group shows across the UK. A regular prize winner, he was awarded the David Cargill Award and the 2002 Cuthbert Award for ‘New Young Artist’ from the Royal Glasgow Institute. He has also received a Grant from The Scottish Arts Council, two from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, Canada. Exhibiting artists include: Christopher Bratton, Katy Cannon, Karen Cleveland, Alicia Guzman, Ben Johnsen, Joey Trisolini, Jessica Kennedy, Colleen Massari, Shannon Tebay. Examining an artifact retrospectively is key to historical research. This means not only examining an object through a modern, 21st Century lens but through the context of its own time. This historical context might include social, religious, political, environmental and economic factors of the past, and requires that we consider perspectives and experiences outside of our own. As a historian, I must investigate objects and events without personal value judgements shaped by modern understandings and ethics. And the story of the American Buffalo is a prime example of the need for contextual consideration.

Along with rhythm comes the idea of rate or pace. Not every song is slow. Neither is every song fast. Tempo is the musical term that indicates the overall pace of an arrangement. Tempo markings include grave, meaning solemn and extremely slow or allegro, meaning fast and cheerful. A gamut of musical terms for rhythm exists. Her paintings are influenced by many everyday things especially the weather. The Scottish landscapes and seascapes are her main subject matter. The subjects are created from memories in a quirky manner, where figures and animals often feature in the paintings. Nikki feels that working from memory allows her art work to take on a stylized abstract feel. She paints on board and canvas which allows her to layer up mediums creating dense rich colours often discarding her paintbrush and using other means of getting paint onto canvas. In my early days, I would just setup anywhere that was convenient for my clients. However, my clients were not aware of how much space my setups would take. One time I was asked if I could share the desert table? Sure, I love deserts, but by the end of the event I had cookie crumbs and brownie bites all in my face paint. NOT GOOD. We expect our result provides an evidence for better music therapy for dementia patients with Japanese culture. Ansdell, G. (2010). Can Everything Become Music? Scrap Metal in Southern England. In B.

Music engages much of the brain, and coordinates a wide range of processing mechanisms. This naturally invites consideration of how music cognition might relate to other complex cognitive abilities. The tremendous ability that music has to affect and manipulate emotions and the brain is undeniable, and yet largely inexplicable. Very little serious research had gone into the mechanism behind music’s ability to physically influence the brain and even now the knowledge about the neurological effects of music is scarce.

Timbre also known as tone color or tone quality (from psychoacoustics ), is the perceived sound quality of a musical note, sound or tone. Timbre distinguishes different types of sound production, such as choir voices and musical instruments, such as string instruments, wind instruments, and percussion instruments. It also enables listeners to distinguish different instruments in the same category (e.g., an oboe and a clarinet, both woodwind instruments).

I wondered: Could our processing of music be so different, or so basic, that abilities relating to it remained accessible in people so limited in function? In 1978, little was known about music and brain function. Today, as a result of exponentially increasing research, particularly over the past five years, we can venture some initial answers to my question. Music has been shown to trigger the nucleus accumbens in the brain, and that structure is also associated with dopamine, the chemical the brain releases during eating and sex, so experts believe that music is biologically desired and rewarded. There was another study that used an fMRI machine to examine the activity of the nucleus accumbens while people listened to music. Researchers played 60 clips of novel songs to participants and then they asked how much money the participants would pay for the song. The more activity the music created in the nucleus accumbens, the more people were willing to spend. Another study, conducted by scientists from University of Helsinki (Finland), Aarhus University (Denmark) and University of Bari (Italy), has proven that love of music is determined by genetics and depends on the function of the neurotransmitter dopamine. It helps humans anticipate pleasure, remember it and strive for it despite discomfort. Scientists noted that, having listened to music, participants of their experiment experienced functional changes in their dopamine receptors, which improved their mood. The researchers noted that this is the first study that has shown that music affects the brain’s physical structure. In the third episode of our short introductions to leading Abstract Expressionist painters, the RA’s Artistic Director Tim Marlow looks at the work of Joan Mitchell. The visual outcome of an artistic movement, or an artist. For example, the style of Abstract Expressionism is manifest as large canvases with non figurative and often chaotic imagery and application. The mature style of Piet Mondrian is geometric, with a white background, a black grid formation and primary colours. In 1975 Davy Brown won a modern art scholarship from the Institute of Cultural Affairs in Chicago. This enabled Davy to travel extensively in the USA and Canada. He was also able to further develop his skills as a talented contemporary Scottish artist. Davis, Elliot Bostwick, Erica E. Hirshler, Carol Troyen, Karen E. Quinn, Janet L. Comey, and Ellen E.

Participants in this study were female and male adult residents of an Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment unit (IDDT) within a larger substance use disorder treatment program in the Great Lakes Region. Each participant had a primary diagnosis of substance use disorder and a secondary mental illness, unknown to the researchers unless the participant chose to share this information. Typical diagnoses were confirmed by the program staff as Affective Disorders (Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder) and Anxiety Disorders (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). In rare cases, residents were diagnosed with Personality Disorders, Schizophrenia, and Schizo-Affective Disorder. No noticeable symptoms of psychosis were noted by the researchers during music therapy sessions. All residents took psychotropic medications.
