The Formative Power of Music:

The Connection between Music, your Virtues…and your Sins

St. Augustine once famously said, “He who sings prays twice.”  These words seem easy to swallow when we think of liturgical music or songs of Praise and Worship, but what about the rest of your life, or of the world around you?  What about those songs that play in the background–in your car, the local store, your children’s iPod?  What about these many popular songs which can implant so easily in our minds, and flow so easily from our lips?  How mindful are we of these songs, and more importantly, of these lyrics?

Can music actually make you more virtuous…or more sinful?  These, and many other questions, will be answered at Cindy Brown’s talk on the philosophy of music and the role of music in the Christian life.  This talk is important for everyone, but it is especially necessary for anyone who has children or works with children.  Do not underestimate the powerful influence of music in your life.  Come find out why!

Cindy Brown is the daughter of Steve Ray, author, international speaker, and the creator of the Footprints of God documentary video series.  She got her masters in philosophy from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, as well as a degree in theology with Scott Hahn as her thesis director.  Cindy has finished all her Ph.D. work except for the dissertation from the Catholic University of America, at which point God made it clear that it was time to focus on her family.  Having been homeschooled all the way through high school, Cindy is now homeschooling her own 5 children and teaching high school philosophy courses for the Christ the King homeschool.
