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

by Dena Register, PhD, MT-BC

Part of being a music therapist is sharing your stories—incredible stories—of the triumphs, both great and small, that you encounter every day. 

We often have the opportunity to witness the absolute best in the human condition, from the new parents who are learning to adapt and support their pre-mature infant to the family who is grappling with a hospice diagnosis of a loved one...

It’s like creating handicap-parking spots.
It’s like building on-ramps.
It’s like making reachable doorknobs.


We live in a culture of musical disability. "Music is healing" a message we’ve inherited from indigenous tribal people seems to be rarely shared...

When traveling, I find no better way to immerse myself in the culture and spiritual nuance of the destination than by experiencing the local music. I've recently returned from Kauai, Hawaii and various points in Australia. Two oceanic cultures with long musical traditions...

 Which  sounds make your life stressful and which make it healthful?  Do daily sounds fulfill, annoy or drain you? It may be that sounds flood you so quickly that you don?t even know. How can you be more aware and increase the flow of healing sounds to come in your direction?  I'm a lover of music, a hater of noise and a career music therapist...

What would you do if you were suddenly faced with the threat of losing your most important gift? What if regaining it required more effort and willpower than you’d ever imagined and forced you to rely on parts of yourself you never even knew existed?

Rick Allen became a rock star at the early age of 15 as the drummer for the group Def Leppard. After an explosion of success in the early eighties, his world was suddenly turned upside down in 1984, when a violent car accident caused him serious injuries and the loss of his left arm...

The purpose of board certification in music therapy is to provide an objective national standard that can be used as a measure of professionalism by interested agencies, groups, and individuals. The CBMT administers a written objective examination, based on a nationwide music therapy practice analysis that is regularly reviewed and updated to reflect current clinical practice. CBMT is the only organization to certify music therapists to practice music therapy nationally. It has been fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) since 1986. Over 4,900 music therapists currently maintain the MT-BC credential, and participate in a program of recertification designed to measure or enhance competence in the profession of music therapy.

"You will accomplish more than has ever been accomplished," wrote Haydn at the beginning of Beethoven's career, "have thoughts that no other has had. You will never sacrifice a beautiful idea to a tyrannical rule, and in that you will be right. But you will sacrifice your rules to your moods, for you seem to me to be a man of many heads and hearts. One will always find something irregular in your compositions, things of beauty, but rather dark and strange."

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...
