I’m thrilled to share that we are officially launching a new Centre for Music and Health at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, NUS! Establishing such a centre has been a dream of mine for nearly 2 decades, and I'm feeling very grateful and excited. I'm greatly looking forward to working with amazing people here at YST, NUS, and the larger community on new music initiatives to improve lives. Can't wait to see what exciting new programs and collaborations will blossom out of the CMH!
I am honored to be an invited speaker for the lecture series hosted by the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Washington, DC, next month. I will be talking about 'Music, Technology, and Health', and how we can leverage this exciting intersection of disciplines to forge a new (musical) frontier in healthcare. Attendance is free and open to the public!
This Friday morning, June 21st, I'm honoured to be giving a Grand Rounds talk at NUH on 'Developing Music-Based Technologies to Support Cognitive, Motor, and Emotional Wellness'. The talk is free and open to the public (one does not have to be NUH affiliated), and a light breakfast will be served. The abstract is below, and details about time and location may be found in the poster advert.
I'm excited to be sharing about the potential of music medtech to make big strides in healthcare this Wednesday evening (7-9pm) at Lime House, as part of Singapore's 'Pint of Science' event.
