An Introduction to Euphony
What does it mean to listen?
In our youngest years we are taught how to speak, read and write, but not how to listen. And yet listening is an essential tool for us to form harmonic human relationships.
This workshop, presented by the renowned pianist, author and educator DANIEL LEVY, uses music as a tool to understanding the art of listening. It offers a deep insight into the ways in which a skill that we so often take for granted, can transform our personal and professional lives.
Having spent 30 years studying music and sound, DANIEL LEVY authored the book Euphony, the Sound of Life - an investigation of the effects of sound on the human being. The book went on to become the core text in a celebrated European Union Socrates Grundtvig course, where DANIEL LEVY was also the main tutor.
‘Euphony is the re-discovery of our reality in terms of audible as well as inaudible sound’
