Sometimes a special moment comes along in one’s life to be remembered and re-visited. I would like to share such a moment in my life with you [in which] music, always being an important part of my life, came into play...





Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Dr. Jane Ma’ati-Smith, C Hyp, MscD

The meaning of the word Chakra in Sanskrit is "spinning wheel of energy". The chakras are energy centers within our bodies. Receiving and transmitting energy, each chakra is located within the physical body, at a major endocrine gland, and nerve bundle called a plexus...


Editor's Note: Did you know using and being aware of your chakras can promote physical, spiritual and emotional health? We each have several chakras, or "energy centers" within our bodies. Dr. Jane Ma-ati-Smith writes an enlightening article on the healing benefits of Chakra Healing with Sound.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Antoinette Morrison, MT-BC

Process versus product. Generally when I give an introductory talk about music therapy, I begin by making the comparisons between Music for Leisure, Music Education, and Music Therapy. Music for Leisure is a passive type of music which I am going to leave alone today...


Editor's Note: Music therapist Antoinette Morrison is asked by her son, "Why would anyone want to get a four year degree in something they couldn't get a job in?" in regards to someone who is on that path. She answers him by listing her own experiences through her sometimes difficult yet rewarding job.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Lisa Moore

Some of my earliest memories are of my mother, Rose Beebe, 88, singing to me: nursery rhymes, patriotic songs, Christmas carols, church hymns, advertising jingles.

Mom wasn't always on key, but her enthusiasm was infectious and I followed her lead...


Editor's Note: Lisa Moore shares a touching story of her Mom's personal journey and relationship with music. She shares the challenges and healing one may experience in caring for a parent and a child.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Daniel Tague, MME, MT-BC

One of the most important things I have learned lately is that be you a teacher or therapist, it is imperative that you "teach for transfer."  This means that we have to explain why we are doing something, (e.g., a song, instrument activity, etc.) and how it will help outside of the therapeutic setting or class...


Editor's Note: Music therapists use a variety of techniques to help individuals reach their potential both inside and outside of sessions. What might this look like in real time? Daniel Tague explores this idea, and also encourages readers to share their ideas. Share your ideas in our Music Therapy & Sound Healing forum!


Music Therapy & Sound Healing


Editor's Note from Meagan Hughes: From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Žene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bośnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia. More specifically, From Woman to Woman introduces the use of the voice and the body - singing and body percussion in the broadest sense of the word - as a powerful supplement to existing medical and psychosocial support programs.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Rachelle Norman

Last week, I had the honor of speaking about music for self-care at a Breakfast Club sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association’s Heart of America chapter...


Editor's Note: As carers, we must always stay mindful of replenishing our resources. Take some time every day for you.





Music Therapy & Sound Healing



Editor's Note: Charles Limb is a doctor and a musician. He explores the topic of cochlear implantation: how it helps restore hearing loss, but also what implants may lack. Specifically, how implants may be adapted to help individuals better experience music. A must-see!!!


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Dean Quick, MT-BC

Writing can feel limiting for me.

I often compare my ideas for writing to other people’s. Then I toss my idea because they’ve already done it. You see, my struggle with writing is that of comparison to others. My observing mind overpowers my analytical mind...


Editor's Note: Another reflective and poignant entry by Dean Quick.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Christine K. Stevens, MSW, MA, MT-BC

Being musical does not have to be difficult.
The ability to be musical comes from within.

You don't have to play an instrument to be musical.
You already ARE an instrument...




Music Therapy & Sound Healing


Editor's Note: Frank Perry speaks about where and how Sound Healing may be used. He focuses on the use of balance, silence, stillness, and meditation. He demonstrates and explains the healing power of the Tibetan singing bowl.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Matt Logan

This post relates to a very basic part of what we consider to be “advocacy”. It is yet another response to that question we always get: So what do you do? We have all rehearsed little elevator pitches and definitions. My approach to answering this question changed a bit over the course of last year, and I hope it will spark some ideas in others...


Editor's Note: There are many types of learning. There are the lessons we learn through rote, through listening, through visual examples, through lived experiences. There is a special type of learning that comes through shared and sharing stories. Stories have a special way of sticking in our minds, and making an impression on our hearts.

Keep Breathing: Music for Speech, for Life

by Natasha Thomas
