Music for Mood, Memory and Motivation

Jennifer, through her work, has touched many people in ways that could only be accomplished with both her special gift and her music.   Thank you Jennifer for giving me, and all those that have had the benefit of hearing you, one of the most heart warming experiences of my life.

How the intentional use of music can improve mood, memory and motivation.

There are so many ways music can lift our spirits, alleviate our pain, and make us feel better. This presentation offers healthcare, corporate, not-for-profit and educational organizations a much-needed mental health and wellness boost.  It does this by showing our valued people how to feel better, and function better, at home, at work, and in their daily lives using music with greater intention.

Quite simply, music brings meaning into moments, but on a more complex level, music impacts brain function and human behaviour. It reduces stress, relieves pain, and improves symptoms of isolation and depression. It boosts our mood, enhances our memory, and motivates us.

Over thirty years working as a music therapist, I’ve witnessed the power of music in people as young as two months to 104. From the classroom to corrections, the boardroom to the palliative care, and everywhere in between the impact of music is nothing short of transformational. 

Made up of a highlight reel of stories I’ve gathered throughout my career, coupled with research and strategies to implement, this interactive keynote will ensure your audience stays tuned in.

  • Explore new research that amplifies the work happening at the intersection of music, health, and neuroscience.
  • Hear real stories that demonstrate how music – when used with intention – can reduce stress and anxiety while igniting creativity required for new ideas and problem-solving.
  • Identify how music is a communication bridge, one that can help individuals express and process their most significant life challenges, difficult transitions, and at times, an unexpected health crisis.

Tune In demonstrates that when we experience the right music in the right way, renewal follows – one note at a time.

I had booked Jennifer as a closing keynote speaker for an Annual Conference. Right from the start when we spoke I was impressed with her professionalism, knowledge, and keen interest in our event. She made some recommendations on what she could add and customize to the closing keynote presentation to end the conference with a WOW factor.

She delivered on her promise, and her warmth and engaging style captivated the audience, and we all learned from what she shared. As a meeting planner, I’ve witnessed many keynote presenters and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jennifer for any event.
