Music therapy workshop


Fridays from 2.15 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The workshop is led by Elodie KIRMANN (psychologist).

The workshop is divided into two parts :

Receptive music therapy

The first hour is spent on receptive music therapy : the participants (no more than 8) listen to 6 to 8 classical music pieces, 2 by 2, for an hour, and are asked to comment between each. The objective is to enable each patient to capture and express how the music heard resonates within, whether in the form of images, emotions or memories… Each patient is asked to share how they feel with the group if they so wish. This workshop is open to all and no knowledge of classical music is required.

Choral singing

The second part is an active music therapy workshop and a choral singing session which also lasts 1 hour. After a relaxation, voice warm-up and improvisation phase, each patient chooses one or two pop songs that they then all sing together. At the end of the session, participants, like before, are asked to say what they feel in their body and how they feel emotionally after singing and participating in the group. This workshop is also open to all and you don’t have to know how to sing!

Finally, at the end of the session, from 5 to 6 p.m., the music therapist can see those that did not wish to speak in front of the group who wish to discuss a specific emotion that may have felt in one of the two workshops.
