Music Evokes Memories and Emotions

Dim the lights, take a deep breath, and press play to explore the emotions and memories that music elicits. Class members begin using relaxation techniques designed to create a positive listening experience. As music plays, learners listen carefully and allow it to call upon emotions, memories, and reflect those feelings via written work and artistic representation.
