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.

Music Therapy


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...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Jill Mattson

The field of Sound Healing is a rapidly growing discipline that is recently attracting a lot of interest. Many of the techniques that are employed stem from ancient traditions. Modern scientific research, however, is adding to our understanding of how sound interacts with and enhances our bodies and minds...

 

Editor's Note: What exactly is it about sound and music which touches us? It's difficult to place our finger on one specific aspect as the experience is different for every individual. Perhaps this is what makes music and sound universally beautiful. Jill Mattson explores three aspects of music and sound; intervals, pitch, and rhythm.
