HLC535: Introduction to Expressive Sound and Music

1 Credit(s)

This foundation course serves as an introduction to the uses of Expressive Sound and Music as a vehicle for growth and transformation.  Through exercises and discussion, the course will explore how Expressive Sound can be utilized to help release tensions, express emotions, and calm the nervous system. The in-class experiences will draw upon various sound-based modalities, including: breathing practices, vocal toning, deep listening, rhythm explorations, and improvisation as part of an intermodal expressive arts approach.  This course also introduces ways to begin to adapt and utilize these practices with others in a variety of professional settings, including counseling, psychotherapy, education, healthcare, the arts and the corporate environment.

This course is one of the three prerequisite foundation courses for the CAGS/CGS in the professional application of the expressive and creative arts, along with HLC 582 and HLC 584.
