Encore University’s Masterclass series continues with a special three class event!

In this special 3-part masterclass – a master course in learning – Encore University instructor Joey Clark returns to the Zoom classroom for the next installment in his Healing Through Music course!

In this series, we will explore both Western and Eastern philosophies of how music has been used throughout history as a healing practice. We will delve into studies of physical anatomy, scientific research, and historical practice while being guided in explorations through movement, singing, vocal toning, chanting, and percussion instrumentation. Our goal is to leave refreshed, enlightened and full of resources to nurture your own body, mind, and spirit with musical interventions!

This special Mastercourse will cover three major topics and is offered as a special bundle for Encore Creativity. For $30 (the price of two Masterclasses), you will be granted access to all three classes!

  • Class One (June 26, 7:30 PM – 9 PM ET): An overview of medical research (brain processing of music, endocrine system, vagus nerve, muscular anatomy, cardiovascular health, respiratory system, energy systems, psychology)
  • Class Two (July 24, 7:30 PM – 9 PM ET): A deep dive on the spiritual traditions of music (drum circles, singing bowls, chanting, meditation)
  • Class Three (August 21, 7:30 PM – 9 PM ET): Exploring how musical healing has been put into practice throughout time (vocal toning, drumming – frame drum and steel-tongue drum, singing, breathwork)
