Join us on Thursday, May 26th, 2022 from 3:30-5:00 pm EDT via Zoom for the Creative Science Shop on Learning through Music: The “Dialogic” Approach.

Come to this online workshop on music and dialogue as forms of learning and happiness for all ages. Our two guests will speak, respectively, about the mutual enthusiasm of an authentic, personal musical performance that tells a story, and then about a model of education that moves beyond conventional venues and is based on creativity and dialogue.

Originally from New York State and living in Montreal, Matt Herskowitz is a virtuoso pianist whose compositions combine classical, jazz, pop and world music. After more than 20 years of classical concert, he trained in jazz at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, then took a detour into pop music. His music reaches an older audience as well as the new generation of musicians: “they love it because it’s real, I’m sharing with them who I am as an artist”.

A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, religious studies scholar, Prof. Norman Cornett created the “dialogic” approach to education 35 years ago. It is now a subject of study in France, Germany, the United States, Canada, and Quebec where he lives. His presentation will focus on “the interstices of learning, beyond the traditional spaces and sources of education in order to perceive the human condition as a continuous cognitive and creative process”.

So come join us, to learn and celebrate through the sharing of experiences, knowledge and expertise: yours and the group’s!

The Creative Science Shop is a semi-monthly meet-up, an exchange of ideas, innovations, scientific and artistic projects. This intergenerational group brings together passion in the arts and sciences from older adults, students, and researchers.
