Music Therapy Lectures

Due to inclement weather, these lectures have been cancelled.

A growing trend in health care today is music therapy, which uses singing, playing instruments, and listening to songs as a therapeutic way to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of patients.

Seattle Pacific University, the first college in Washington state to offer an undergraduate music therapy program, will host a nationally recognized music therapy researcher for a series of lectures on the SPU campus February 24-25.

Guest speaker Dr. Deforia Lane is a nationally recognized researcher, clinician, and spokesperson for the American Music Therapy Association, as well as the director of music therapy at University Hospital Case Medical Center in Cleveland.
