Music as Medicine

On December 14th, Steven Holochwost had the opportunity to present at the National Institute of Health’s Music as Medicine convening as part of a panel on music education, school readiness, and school success. In the presentation, Dr. Holochwost discusses the possibility that music education may benefit young children’s school readiness through its impacts on the neurophysiological systems that form the bridge between students’ brains and bodies. He goes on to present the approaches and findings of a set of studies on this topic being conducted by he and his colleagues (including Drs. Eleanor Brown and Dennie Palmer Wolf) from the Research on Equity via the Arts in Childhood (REACH) Lab, a Research Lab funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Watch the presentation here (Dr. Steven Holochwost starts at 05:23:00).
