How many times do you play your favorite song or playlist in a week? Sometimes, it feels as though we can’t live without our favorite music, but why is that? The connection between our emotions and music can be really powerful! Hear from a Northwestern Medicine exercise physiologist (she’s also a classically trained piano teacher) on why this connection is so strong. Explore the effect music has on our health and how different tempos and types of music might make us feel. You’ll have the opportunity to dig into different music genres and see how they can decrease depression symptoms and anxiety. Try some breathing exercises too. All of this will help you on your journey as a music lover and healthy human. Sign up now!
