HLC615: Utilizing Expressive Sound/Music and Theater Arts - for Creativity and Healing

3 Credit(s)
This expressive arts course will deepen one’s understanding of the realms of expressive sound, music and rhythm as a means of personal growth, community-building and healing. The specific focal points for the course will include: vocal explorations and toning, elements of music for self-discovery and community-building, creativity and music, and recreational music making. We will also incorporate the practice of deep listening and mindfulness as a touchstone for the explorations. The course combines theory with practical exercises that demonstrate how to integrate them into programs for healing and education, as utilized in a variety of settings.   Students will learn how to adapt and integrate elements of expressive sound and music into their own professional areas of specialization, including counseling, psychotherapy, medical care-giving, the arts, education, and the corporate environment, through discussions and the utilization of sound and music-based exercises that emphasize an intermodal arts approach.  This course is offered in a blended format, involving weekend experiential intensives along with guided study time for personal and professional integration. This course is required for the CAGS/CGS in the professional applications of the expressive and creative arts. Any student who would like to register for this course prior to acceptance into the CAGS/CGS expressive and creative arts program would need specific permission of the program coordinator.
