Music Therapy Advocacy Music Video

January is Music Therapy Social Media Advocacy Month!  Check out the promotions page to read all the great participating blogs, and check out all our posts so far!

Now, what kind of music therapists would we be if we didn’t sing you a song about music therapy and advocacy?  Bad ones!  We’re proud to present: “What Music Therapists Want You To Know,” a piggyback song of “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye, with the fabulous cover and video by Walk Off The Earth.

Enjoy, and please share!  Lyrics and FREE song download are below the video!

Now and then I think of those affected by music therapy

Like those with autism, Alzheimer’s or pain

Parkinson’s or TBI, cancer or drug rehab

When there’s a need music therapy is there to heal

Music therapy addresses different goals

Physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs

Playing instruments and singing songs

Clients develop skills for life long

Progressive goals are tracked with measurable objectives

Chorus

MT’s are using music to work on clinical goals for people of all ages

It’s so much more than singing songs, we’re designing and implementing treatment plans

Educated, trained, board certified, 1200 hours of clinical contact

Using rhythm, rhyme, and melody, many who can’t talk are often able to sing.

Our musical approach has support in evidence-based research

From childhood development to stroke rehabilitation

Music can rewire the brain, relax the body, reduce pain

There is much more our research shows

and everyday our knowledge of the brain and music grows and grows

Chorus

MT’s are using music to work on clinical goals for people of all ages

It’s so much more than singing songs, we’re designing and implementing treatment plans

Music therapy is functional, we meet goals while bringing joy and dignity to treatment

MT for procedural support, decreases pain, sedation, cost, anxiety.

Our modality is crazy motivational.

    This was very clever and entertaining! Go YOU!
    I have seen the music reach people who others might think couldn’t respond. All people have feelings. The music reaches that place in all of us. I will always be an advocate because I have seen the positive results of Music Therapy.
