An innovative mindset: Teaching Embodied Sonic Meditation in Higher Education
This article introduces an experimental pedagogical methodology of Embodied Sonic Meditation to teach electronic music composition, performance and technology in higher education.  From UC Santa Barbara to the University of Colorado, I’ve been designing a music technology and mindfulness arts course that can appeal to students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines from music to math, chemistry, engineering, creative literature and art.  In addition to a focus on technical skills, such as creative coding, along with a drive towards critical thinking, the course provides a non-hierarchical, open and student-centered "maker" theme, supported by state-of-the-art technologies and mindfulness practices.  Students enjoyed the overall course and provided positive evaluations.  The data shows that Embodied Sonic Meditation effectively facilitates the learning experiences.
