Soundscaping combines an understanding of the elements of music and their impact on the brain with the power of entertainment to modify the physiological state. Some of the research into music and the brain referenced in the class is "The Power of Sound" by Joshua Leeds, "Healing at the Speed of Sound" by Don Campbell and Alex Doman, "This is Your Brain on Music" by Daniel Levitin and "Soundtracks for Learning" by Chris Boyd Brewer.

The class is appropriate for music students, music lovers, students, classroom instructors, health care workers and caregivers. Those attending should bring their music devices or song/play lists.

The instructor is Sheila Baker Bondurant, a vocal teacher, choir director and performer. She has sung with the Dallas and Fort Worth Opera Choruses, Union Avenue Opera Theater, Opera Illinois, Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, South Arkansas Symphony, Full Score Orchestra and the College of Lake County choirs. She received her B.A. in music from Illinois Wesleyan University and M.M. in vocal performance from Louisiana State University.

To register or for more information, contact Dr. Charles Clency, CLC professor of music, at (847) 543-2569 or cclency@clcillinois.edu. Seating is limited, so register early, and participants may choose either date.
