OnEdSSChat – Music And Mental Health

By Noa Daniel

Passionate educators connect weekly to address questions, explore perspectives and learn from each other.

This month the ONedSsChat panel discusses the connection between Music and Mental Health. The following questions guide today’s discussion and this month’s slow chat:

1. Why do you listen to music?
2. Why should teachers use music in class and/or allow students to listen to their own music?
3. How does music affect your mental health? Positively/ negatively?
4. What impact does creating music have on your mental health? Why?
5. What are you favourite songs/bands for different moods and/or activities? (For example, what songs/ bands motivate you #MotivationMusic, help you study #StudyMusic, help you sleep #SleepMusic, etc.)
