The Cincinnati Music & Wellness Coalition hosted a fundraiser at Peterloon Estate as part of its effort to introduce patients at the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center to the impact music can have on health.
A New York-based musician and composer, Zac Greenberg of Musicians for Health, performed and discussed music therapy when he visited Cincinnati for the event. Proceeds will help purchase clavinova pianos for the VA Medical Center.
Through the program known as Clavinova Connection, state-of-the-art keyboards and a user-friendly educational technique introduce novices to piano playing. Each Clavinova Connection session consists of singing, physical stretching, meditation, and drum and sound improvisation. The goal is to build confidence and self-esteem, while enhancing relaxation and well being.
