Created by the experts, inTime is an organic compilation of original compositions, based on a blend of world music with diverse percussion, string, and wind instrumentation, which accents the power of rhythm and sound frequencies. inTime provides a personalized program of listening training and fun movement activities, using body, drum, and voice to help you keep your beat, and flow with the rhythms of daily life. Only 18 spots are available, so if you are interested in registering, call us immediately at 801-622-5676. Transportation will be provided for course attendees to and from Salt Lake City.
On Friday, April 20, ABT will host an education seminar during the conference, also presented by Sheila Allen. The seminar will take place from 11:00AM – 11:45AM in ESS Theater 2. The seminar is titled “Supporting Participation with Music Listening Therapy”. The following is a description of this free AOTA conference seminar:
Music plays an important role in everyday life, whether we are aware of it or not. It can alter our mood, help us work harder, and help ease our stress. Music can also affect the brain in amazing ways. What happens when sound’s foundational elements, delivered as music, are intentionally and technologically enhanced? Acoustically-modified music, like that found in The Listening Program, has been proven to help children and adults improve their focus, learning, listening and communication skills.
