Cordially Invites You To our first event of 2020



Friday, January 10, 2020


Dr. Timothy Cruz
 Medical Doctor and Professor at Pima Community College and the UA School of Medicine
The Biology of Music

Why do certain songs resonate on a core level, providing comfort to heal or producing various emotions?

Music plays a therapeutic role in healing and wellness, as well as bringing pleasure to the ears and soul. Dr. Cruz will describe the new and expanding frontiers of biomusicality – the biology of music – through a discussion of neurophysiology, cognitive processes, and structural components of memory and emotion. Don’t let the scientific words daunt you; the talk is intended to give us an awareness of how music affects each one of us on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level, and how that process might help us to heal and stay well.

Dr. Cruz teaches undergraduate Anatomy and Physiology at Pima Community College in addition to being a Clinical Associate Professor in Pediatrics at the UA College of Medicine. As an undergraduate, he studied Biological Sciences at Stanford University, attended the UCLA School of Medicine, and completed a residency in pediatrics at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center.  He began playing violin when he was nine; during medical school, residency, and clinical practice, Dr. Cruz played with the Santa Monica Symphony for eleven seasons.
