Coeur D’Alene Symphony’s Free Music Wellness Class

The Coeur D’Alene Symphony Orchestra (CSO) is delighted to announce an upcoming free music wellness class, along with Music4Life that promises not just melodies but a therapeutic journey through the “6 Habits of Music Medicine.” Created by clinical music therapist Judith Pinkerton, this innovative program invites participants to explore the healing power of music through interactive sessions, research exploration, and self-reflection.

Empowering through Music Medicine

In a community where mental health challenges, substance abuse disorders, and other vulnerabilities are on the rise, CSO recognizes the urgent need to introduce the healing potential of music. Kootenai County has seen rates surpass statewide and national averages for various concerning indicators, and the CSO is committed to being part of the solution.

Diving into the 6 Habits

The program focuses on the “6 Habits of Music Wellness for Wellbeing.” Participants will delve into therapeutic activities, connect with preferred music genres, and reflect on their listening habits. The class aims to empower individuals to understand the profound impact music can have on mental well-being, serving as a beacon of hope and healing.

Dialogues with Danh and Beyond

Building on the success of the pre-concert series, “Dialogues with Danh,” CSO has been actively working towards expanding its outreach to vulnerable populations. The series has been a catalyst for the formal program, incorporating CSO musicians trained as Music Medicine Advisors. These Advisors will showcase the transformative influence of rhythm and active/passive listening, bringing the power of music to the forefront.

Children’s Village Training Program

The CSO is excited to launch a training program in collaboration with Children’s Village in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, starting March 2024. This initiative seeks to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young individuals, fostering a sense of well-being through music. The success of this training will pave the way for an expanded program at Children’s Village from June 2024 onwards.

Join Us on this Harmonious Journey

The free music wellness class will take place every Tuesday, from March 26 to May 7, at the Children’s Village Family Support Center, located at 1350 W Hanley Ave 83815. The sessions will run from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. This is a unique opportunity to engage with the community, explore the transformative power of music, and contribute to the well-being of vulnerable populations.
