SONGC!RCLE: Music is the Medicine. Life’s Challenges Put To Song
Music is the Medicine. Life’s Challenges Put To Song
#TEDxCK 2016 Performance
Julie will share songs, and information about a weekly acoustic event called SONGC!RCLE, held at her studio, Fit As A Fiddle, which she refers to as “a place to really discover one’s voice, and to be playful about creating art or music, writing, and collaborating with peers, in a classroom environment.” Julie feels that her most important work to date is in this room, where the stories and sharing have a big impact on members and visitors, helping participants in their life, as well as musical, journeys.
