    in Health

    Kris Warren, a documentary filmmaker, is producing an exciting new film about how clinical Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy are being used as options for treating symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and many other populations. He is also a music artist who discovered Music Therapy recently in August 2013. Kris wrote a song about how music is his therapy not knowing that Music Therapy is a viable and effective treatment option. Since that moment, he went on a journey throughout the USA interviewing experts on Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy for the upcoming documentary titled Music Is My Therapy: MusicTherapyDocumentary.Com.  Funds are also currently being raised on Kickstarter to film internationally.


    Kris is joined by Professor Michael Thaut from Colorado State University. Dr. Thaut's internationally recognized research focuses on brain function in music, especially time information processing in the brain related to rhythmicity and biomedical applications of music to neurologic rehabilitation of cognitive and motor functions.
