EP17 Keynote 04 - Mozart and the Art of Listening - Rob Kapilow and Jeffrey Zeig, PhD
Original Program Date :
At the heart of psychotherapy is the idea that listening to someone is an inherently healing act. Can an understanding of the grammar of music help us better understand the grammar of how patients communicate? Can Mozart help transform how we listen? Join NPR and PBS commentator Rob Kapilow [or conductor/composer/author--whichever you think is better] for a unique exploration inside the language of music to see if it can help us learn to listen like Mozart.

Rob Kapilow has brought the joy and wonder of classical music – and unraveled some of its mysteries – to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Characterized by his unique ability to create an “aha” moment for his audiences and collaborators, whatever their level of musical sophistication or naiveté, Kapilow’s work brings music into people’s lives: opening new ears to musical experiences and helping people to listen actively rather than just hear. As the Boston Globe said, “It’s a cheering thought that this kind of missionary enterprise did not pass from this earth with Leonard Bernstein. Rob Kapilow is awfully good at what he does. We need him.” The reach of his interactive events and activities is wide, both geographically and culturally: his audiences are diverse and unexpected, but invariably rapt and keen to come back for more.
