The Music & Wellness Project was prompted by research indicating that “Music is a high impact, low cost intervention for stress and pain relief” (Sadler) I received a mini-grant of $5000 from the University to pursue this project that included recording a classical CD for voice and piano focused on calm and inspiration along with creating a student group with the intent to use our music for health and wellness wherever we could. We created a student group who observed the recording of my CD project and then went to work making music for the community.
Below is the link to the CD I recorded for this project. Please take a listen and may it be a calming and uplifting experience for you.
Our community partners for this project included:
The California Hospital
The Rio Hondo Subacute & Nursing Center
The Upland Rehabilitation & Care Center
The Silverado Hospice Center
Below are some photos from the events in these places.
