sarah_WEB_131Since 2013 I have been delivering workshops and engaging presentations to thousands of health care professionals, care partners, artists, and community stakeholders across the country. I am as fond of speaking at medical conferences that are looking for a refreshing and inspiring twist to their program, as I am of facilitating small music-based workshops in rural hospices to volunteers. I have also offered workshops for musicians, yoga practitioners, students, and support groups that incorporate the therapeutic use of music into their overall program goals.

Past topics include:

  • Bedside music strategies for hospitals
  • Creative arts-based reflective practice for health care professionals
  • Using music in hospice and palliative care
  • Music and caregiving for people with dementia
  • Benefits of music in end-of-life care
  • Singing as psychotherapy
  • Voicing your yoga practice
  • Hymn-writing for faith-based groups
  • Managing environmental sounds in clinical spaces
  • Songwriting and trauma
  • Dealing with diagnosis: an arts-based approach
