stella100x100 The Art of Healing Modes, presented by Stella Benson: This webinar goes into unprecedented detail of the science, practice and affect of each of the seven Western modal scales, modeled after Stella Benson's new book “The Gift of Healing Modes.” It is rich with handouts, interactive and independent exercises, audio samples, links and more. Participants learn the ancient history of the development of the Western modes and other exciting multi-cultural modes and scales. Most importantly, participants learn the healing value of Western modal scales through detailed modal analysis, the fundamental physics of modal sound production, and the foundation behind human responses to each modal scale, which is healing music at its simplest, most intimate and most powerful. Participants increase their musical skill by learning how to segue, or modulate, from one modal mood to another without interrupting the feeling in the listener. The exercises between the two live webinars allow the participant to go beyond a four-hour webinar, going into a full two weeks of musical experience and practice.
