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...

 

Editor's Note: Music therapy is still misunderstood by some, and the wrong questions are asked about it. Music therapist Antoinette Morrison gives a heart-felt explanation of how music therapy differs from its misinterpretation, along with what music therapy means to her.

 

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 Maya Benattar, MA, MT-BC, LCAT

A fairly common idea that I often run into is that because most kids love music, they are always happy when they’re working with me. Or that my job is to make them happy. However, as Gershwin would say, “it ain’t necessarily so”.

Kids, of all ages and needs, have a lot going on in their lives and likewise, a lot to process...

 Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Marta Texidó

Research has shown that music has a profound effect on your body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal. Those who practice music therapy are finding a benefit in using music to help cancer patients, children with ADD, and others, and even hospitals are beginning to use music and music therapy to help with pain management, to help ward off depression, to promote movement, to calm patients, to ease muscle tension, and for many other benefits that music and music therapy can bring...

 

Editor's Note: An excellent article summarizing some of the diverse effects of music therapy.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


Antoinette Morrison, MT-BC

As I reflected on my busy and varied week, working with kids of all ages, I stopped to think what theme pervaded my week. The children displayed many strengths, but often, as adults, we don’t look beyond the tip of the iceberg, and just see them disguised as weaknesses...

 

Editor's Note: A music therapist's day can be filled with miracles, as we witness individuals connect to their true essence through music.  This article beautifully weaves the therapist's observations about her clients, specifically their strengths, which can often be overpowered by their disabilities and "weaknesses."

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Jackie Woods

Have you ever had an experience that makes your Heart sing? Of course that doesn’t mean that you instantaneously burst into song, but you felt the presence of your spirit as a living entity inside you. Just remembering how full you felt of all that is positive which made you hunger for more...

 

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Sue Baines, BMus, BMT, MA, FAMI, MTA

In the early 90's I had the honour of working with Edith Boxill, the founder of Music Therapists for Peace in New York City, first while interning and then as I continued my music therapy education in my Masters Degree at New York University. I helped support Edith‘s dream of developing Music Therapists for Peace, which in 1988 became an American non-profit globally inclusive organization...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Mayu Kawata, MT-BC, HHP

Music therapy can be used in a variety of settings, from children with special needs to hospice. Music therapists are trained clinicians who bring musical experiences to meet the complex needs of an individual or group...

 

Editor's Note: Music has been used throughout history for important times of transition in life, including death. Using music can be tremendously healing for those who are dying as well as those who have lost their loved ones. Here's my personal journey on music and death, and why I am passionate about the use of music in end-of-life and bereavement care.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Karie Bilger, BMT, MTA

I am fortunate to work in a facility that offers a diversity of services to our local community. When I talk to people about my work, they are fascinated. “Is it true that people with dementia can remember words to old songs,” they ask, “Can music really calm down people who are agitated?”  All music therapists are familiar with these questions. “You have the most interesting job!” people exclaim. A real conversation stopper in many circles, however, is when I talk about my passion for working with clients in palliative care...

 

Editor's Note: An inspiring and reflective entry by Karie Bilger on the role music therapy can play at the end of one's life.

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...
