Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Dean Quick, MT-BC

The inevitability of discovering yourself in music intrigues me. Finding yourself hidden within a lyric, whether you’ve written, heard, or read the lyric, or maybe you have related to a particular melody line or phrase of music. Have you ever been caught off-guard by the effect a particular piece of music has had on you? Did you further explore what that piece of music meant to you? It is important to fully explore these notions or incidents of surprise in order to best understand yourself...


Editor's Note: Why are we drawn to the music that we listen to? What do these feelings mean? And how can we use these feelings to better understand ourselves? Dean Quick writes inquisitively about the musical experience.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Lisa Rimland, MT-BC

The group is small and the individuals are a heterogeneous mix, some with a history of inappropriate sexual behaviors, violent impulsivity, and gentleness as a veil of quiet seething anger.
