I am a music therapist. My work involves facilitating aesthetic experiences with and for my clients. Beautiful sounds make up a majority of the therapy sessions. Who are my music therapy influences in this regard? Definitely Carolyn Kenny, Helen Bonny, and of course Clive Robbins and Paul Nordoff...


Editor's Note: What makes music 'beautiful'? How do we work with this as music therapists? Suzannah writes curiously and raises some interesting points on beauty in the context of music therapy.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Rebecca McClary, MA, MT-BC,

Though highly structured, music accommodates individual interpretation and creativity: no two will be expressing themselves in precisely the same way, thus providing a format for learning about one’s own unique manner of approaching the creative process, expressing one’s self, interacting with others, and organizing/interpreting artistic material...


Editor' Note: As an internship director I developed this list of common music therapy goals that I have provided to my interns as a useful reference in their practice. I hope that you will find it useful as well. If you have goals to add to this, please post a comment to add to the list!


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by John McManamy

Only Puccini could write music as emotionally heart-rending, but even this master of sad songs never came close to composing a symphonic suicide note. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky did just that. On October 28, 1893, he premiered his Sixth (Pathetique) Symphony to a lukewarm St. Petersburg audience. Nine days later, he was dead. Officially, he contracted cholera as a result of drinking unfiltered water. Unofficially, back in Czarist Russia, this would have equated to swallowing poison...



Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Kristin S. Padilla, RN, BSN, RNC

As a first time mother of an eight-and-a-half month old, I'd like to begin with a personal anecdote of how music has already had an influence on my child's life.

Since the day that we brought my son, Luke, home from the hospital, I have been playing music or singing to him (albeit, not well but he seems to like it!). I didn't think much about music having the ability to calm him down until one day I was driving down the freeway and he started to become very fussy and cry...

Editor's Note: This video illustrates some of the music therapy work and its results in working with people in the Calgary area who have suffered brain injuries. Through this work Jennifer and her music therapists are enabling people to speak who otherwise would not have that opportunity. (ARBI stands for the Association of the Rehabilitation of Brain Injuries located in Calgary.)


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Pamela Lynn

Have you ever been seduced? Lord knows, I have. The experience can be a bit unnerving at first, especially if you’re a skeptic, and you’re suspicious of unforeseen outcomes. On the other hand, being seduced can be an incredibly delicious experience, if who or what, is seducing you affects you in a positive way. When it comes to the art of practicing your chosen discipline, deliberate practice is the ultimate tease...


Editor's Note: A rather poetic entry that speaks to every musician in us. Perhaps we can all hold this in mind the next time we sit down to practice.

Music Therapy

by Kimberly Sena Moore, MM, MT-BC, NMT

If you read my blog, you know that I am a big fan of neuroscience. The brain fascinates me and understanding how it works is a big part of my clinical work.

So it should be no surprise that Dan Levitin’s book This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession has been on my reading list for awhile...


Editor's Note: If you're looking for a great book, check this one out.



Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Julie Russell, RN

Over the past several years I have found that I have been guided to not only work with my hands to run healing energy but also to use sound as a conduit for healing myself and others. It all started for me when I began to use a set of tuning forks on the body and could feel the vibration of the sounds move through my body in a gentle healing manner...

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.

Keep Breathing: Music for Speech, for Life

by Natasha Thomas

Imagine running into someone you haven’t seen in a long time. You recognize their face and feel pleased to see them, your arms open wide for a hug and you say “Hello! How ARE you?” before you can realize what you really want to know is Who they are – you’ve completely forgotten their name...
