Host Shannon Eliot chats with Michael Kessler, a veteran music therapist, and Paulette Franklin, a lifelong vocalist, about the roles of rhythm and melody in healing. Learn how music can be used in both therapeutic and non-therapeutic settings to ease symptoms of mental illness and promote emotional health. Hear remarkable accounts of the positive psychological and physiological effects that music can have on anyone’s life. At the end of the show, enjoy a special musical collaboration by Michael and Paulette.
