Harp for Healing
September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Enjoy the healing power of music & friendship in this supportive group led by Music Therapists Lisa Stine & Laura Caravello where you will learn to play the harp. And when we say “play”, we really mean it! They create a relaxed, joyful, and encouraging environment where Lisa explains that, “the harp is truly a magical instrument – even simple tunes are fun, and nothing sounds bad on it.” Research has shown that cancer patients engaged in music therapy experience a decrease in anxiety, depression, pain and fatigue. And if you are someone who may find yourself questioning if you can play the harp, the answer is “YES YOU CAN!”.
This group is for anyone affected by cancer including patients, survivors, caregivers and family. For the duration of the 16 week program, each participant will be loaned a small Celtic harp to play at home and with others in class. No musical experience is necessary & all are welcomed. The group will meet every-other week for 8 sessions total. (Dates are as follows: 6/13, 6/27, 7/11, 7/25, 8/8, 8/22, 9/5, 9/19)
Our classes and programs are funded by grants, sponsors, donors and clients who are paying it forward. Cancer can be expensive; we do not want finances to be a barrier to accessing our valuable programming. Pay-as-you-can with a suggested donation amount per class of $10-$25.
