Try something new this Mental Health Month and with the guidance of a qualified music therapist, write your first song.
This session is suitable for people of all abilities – whether this is your first time writing a song or your hundredth. You do not need to know how to write music or play an instrument. You just have to be ready to have a go!
Participants will be led by Music Therapist at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Matt Ralph and UNSW Alumna Olivia Halliday, and work through the process of writing song lyrics and a melody, while reaping the wide-ranging benefits of therapeutic songwriting, including the opportunity for self-expression, stress relief, and tapping into your creative brain as a means of interpreting difficult circumstances and overcoming challenges.
This event is for UNSW students and staff. Limited places available and registration is essential.
