March is National Music Therapy Awareness Month!

Here is a quick story that tells why we’re raising money and awareness for music therapy:

When Laura turned four, her parents witnessed her use her hands independently and unsupported for the first time – to strum the music therapist’s guitar. Now in private music therapy sessions, Laura continues to use her hands consistently. Other professionals insisted that Laura would have to “use her head” to push a switch or “eye gaze” to make choices. Today she uses her hands for both tasks. Her parents credit the highly motivational music therapy sessions.

The March for Music Therapy is in support of the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund and in partnership with the Canadian Association for Music Therapy.
