The Asthma and Music Concept
  • The Asthma and Music Workshops were created to help increase awareness about asthma characteristics and symptoms while encouraging students to participate in music and recreational activities in a fun and creative way.
  • The interactive workshops have two different components. The asthma component provides information and education about asthma management while the musical component helps to familiarize students with different types of musical interpretations and the use of an instrument of choice. The students engage in breathing exercises and discussion about the importance of getting oxygen into their lungs. Each workshop consists of three sessions. A professional musician collaborates with CAI to provide the musical component.
