Music That Moves Us w/ Helen Sung & Miriam King

Music on the Brain brings together jazz music and science as we celebrate the way that music affects our brains and bodies. This month our guest scientist from Columbia University is Miriam King who will join New York based and inaugural Zuckerman Institute Jazz Artist-in-Residence pianist Helen Sung. Join us to listen and move with the music, and maybe learn something new!

Miriam King is a Master’s student in the Motor Learning and Control program at Teachers College who works in the Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory (NRL) as a Research Coordinator. She is a dancer with a neuroscience background, and volunteers, teaches, and designs research programs with Dance for PD® (Dance for Parkinson’s, NYC), Dance for Dementia (Ohio State University) and Dance for Huntington’s (University of Massachusetts Amherst).

Music on the Brain is a collaboration between the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute.
