Music for wellbeing: Can our choice of tunes lift our positivity & wellbeing in lockdown?
In this time of disquiet and isolation, culture and music-making remain an important activity to enrich our lives with moments of positivity, uplift and wellbeing. It feeds our deep-seated need for social and intellectual stimulation and emotional connection with others.
