We welcome your engagement with Music, Mind and Wellbeing (MMW). MMW hosts free Public Lectures in the benefits of music for mind and wellbeing, as well as co-hosting seminars in association with the Australian Music and Psychology Society and the Melbourne Recital Centre’s Music on the Mind series.
The Music on the Mind series features eminent minds and musicians discussing the relationship between music and the human brain and the related links to social wellbeing, participation, learning and development and the role of music in our contemporary communities.
If you would like to attend any of our lectures, seminars or be placed on our mailing list so we may contact you about upcoming events, please join our mailing list (Sign up here).

We would like to acknowledge the ongoing support of the following industry and community organisations:
The Bionic Ear Institute and the Florey Neurosciences Institutes and Centre for Neural Engineering comprise internationally leading researchers in auditory and cognitive neuroscience. A/Profs Neil McLachlan and Sarah Wilson will work closely with these bodies to ensure a rapid transfer of ideas and techniques that will advance the fundamental science associated with auditory neuroscience and music. For example, the Bionic Ear Institute has a program for investigating music perception in people with impaired hearing and cochlear implants, and the National Aging Research Institute has been studying the use of music in mitigating dementia.
