IAMM With You: In Conversation 

Join us for this series of live-streamed interviews with professionals around the world who work and play at the intersection of music and medicine/health, meeting approximately twice per month.

Leading scholars, researchers, educators, therapists, musicians, practitioners, and other visionaries offer their expertise in various specialties through an online interview or concert/presentation and open discussion. In the first 30 minutes, they present their current work, its development, and perspectives on the future of music and medicine/health, then respond to questions and comments for another 30 minutes. Immediately following the Q&A, students will be invited to meet together for an additional 30 minutes to continue the discussion with a student moderator.

These experts will also provide reading lists, playlists, websites, or audio/video files for future reference and investigation. The series is being developed with IAMM student members in mind, as well as colleagues who love to learn.
