About the event


Music is one of the most efficient and effective ways to make a positive impact on all areas of your life. All cultures make music, and during times of crisis, we seek its power to connect, create, and soothe.

For almost three decades, Music Therapist and Author Jennifer Buchanan has worked with at-risk youth, incarcerated adults, and senior’s living with dementia using music as a pathway to boosting their mental health. In this seminar, we will explore the connection between music and mental health and why music’s power may hold more potential than you realize.

In this thought-provoking session you will:

  • Hear empowering case studies that demonstrate how music, when used with intention, can reduce and eliminate stress and anxiety.
  • Learn fun and interesting ways that music supports our mental health and overall wellness.
  • Gain practical music-based strategies to strengthen your wellness at home and work.
  • Music can be a communication bridge, one that can help you express and process your greatest life challenges, stressful transitions, and at times, an unexpected health crisis. When words are not enough, let music start the conversation.

Jennifer Buchanan is a certified music therapist, owner of JB Music Therapy, Past- president of the Canadian Association for Music Therapists, and the Author of two award-winning books "Tune In" and "Wellness Incorporated".

This seminar is offered at no cost for our members.
