| Special Topic: Exploring Health and Healing with Music
I just finished participating in a wonderfully exciting conference in Alberta, Canada at Lake Louise. The conference was entitled “Exploring health and healing” and I
did two musical presentations. The first was a lecture on “Using Music Through the Life span for Health and Healing” and I talked about (and illustrated at the piano
and with CD’s) the use of music from pregnancy and with newborns to end-of-life issues, quality of life and even transition to the afterlife! In between those
beginnings and endings, I discussed current research on the use of music with surgery, pain management and addictions. All of these areas are full of opportunities for
people to use their favorite music, recorded or live, or to learn how to use their own voices for healing purposes. These topics were well recieved, and I’d be thrilled
to come to YOUR hometown and present this.
I also presented a piano recital on Wednesday night of my own favorite healing music from throughout my life. This was a first of sorts and I hope to have
it recorded so that I can put it on my website for you to hear. This included compositions by Grieg, Debussy, Schumann, MacDowell, spirituals, hymns, and even
some of my own compositions. At the conclusion, my daughter Julia, who is a professional violinist in Boston joined me for a few of our favorite things!

I am expecting a baby very soon and am wondering about the advisability of putting headphones on my tummy. What do you think??
M.P., Winona, MN
There was a time when we thought that was a good idea, but know that it has been determined that a healthy baby can hear very well during the last
trimester, it is not recommended because the volume of headphones can be too much for those delicate ears. Better for Mom and family to sing to the baby from
nearby or to just listen to music from speakers or a boom box in the room.
As always, Dr. Cash will set up workshops in Louisville and surrounding areas at special request if a minimum of 10-12 people can be assured.
