Music For Your Mental Health

Music For Your Mental Health

Music is so powerful that it is a proven successful therapy for many conditions, both mental and physical.  Music therapists use music to re-train stroke and brain injury survivors how to speak. In fact, there have been many cases in which a patient is unable to speak, but still can still communicate through singing.  Check out this awesome article on the Stroke a Chord choir in Melbourne, AU which is made up entirely of stroke victims.  Music can also be used for physical rehabilitation, invoking muscle memory through music-inspired movement. You can read more about those benefits in this article that refers to a study on right handed participants training their left hand to complete a task.  The differences between the participants who listened to music while attempting those tasks versus those who did not are pretty astounding.  And while these scenarios may seem like extreme circumstances of music therapy, our mental health and the effects music has on it cannot be overlooked.  Whether you’re a songwriter and musician or just the listening ear, music can be one of the best antidotes to stress and anxiety.  As long as humans have been on earth, music has been a source of expression, prayer, and healing.  And while this pandemic has certainly brought a new level of concerns in regards to mental health, it has also given music artists the opportunity to hone their skills and share them with the world in all new ways.  Neon Entertainment’s musicians provide an escape, a relatable experience, a moment to feel and express all of the emotions we’ve been holding on to.  When you host a musical performer for your campus, you aren’t just providing entertainment, you’re providing a mental health break that your students need now more than ever.  Your Neon Entertainment agent would be happy to help you find the right fit for your students.  We cover every genre of music to suit anyone’s listening needs – from blues and r&b to pop and folk music.  Want your own student musicians to be able to share their talents?  Book a Virtual Open Mic night complete with one of our musicians as your Emcee.
