Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: A new virus, unlike any other is infecting schools. It is spread through social media. It is a pandemic that is quickly spreading around the world. Its origins are not known, but individuals with a history of negative and violent home lives are more susceptible to infection. It is highly contagious and no one is immune. Statistics show that 42% of all kids have been bullied online and almost one in four have had it happen more than once. Cyber bullying is a major cause of depression and suicide among teenagers. The Langley Schools Music Department used this artistic medium to illustrate how cyberbullying happens, who does it and what we can be doing about it!

Music Therapy & Sound Healing
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: This is a music video of shamanic music from Siberia featuring the mouth harp - an instrument used amongst shamanic people in several places. Though the production is not "Hollywood slick," the music is good and the shapeshifter imagery is right on. Enjoy!

I’ve never been a big follower of celebrity gossip, but I have noticed an interesting trend as of late: Gwen Stefani makes headlines rocking Rockefeller Center, flaunting her signature six pack abs. Rihanna is spotted at the Heathrow airport in a midriff exposing her flat stomach. Suddenly there’s less chatter about the butts of Jennifer Lopez and the Kardashians, and a lot more focus on midsections. And you don’t have to be a pop music diva to jump on this bandwagon...

Editor's Note from Melinda Wilson: Increasing public awareness and acting as an advocate for music therapy is a big part of a music therapist's job these day! This video, which is the first of two, includes interviews with several music therapists and allied professionals who use their own words to respond to some frequently asked questions about music therapy. Many of these music therapists wish to promote an increase in the availability of music therapy in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, and more. If you still have some questions regarding music therapy, this is a great video watch!
