What Else We Do
Here is what residents and staff are saying when asked what music therapy means to them:
“One word: Release. Its a good release, we get together and release our emotions. Sometimes it can turn into a necessary gripe session, and when it doesn’t, we take out our emotions and frustrations on the drums. The music therapy group helps build camaraderie with each other, which continues on at our meal times because some of us sit together.” – Steve, Men and Music
“They are emotionally in the moment”; “It’s so well worth it, I never want to let it go”; ” She’s in a totally different light after the session”; I personally love New Song – Jennifer, Program Manager
