New Instruments!!

Last Saturday, I attended B&B Music in Camden, DE's 60th Anniversary celebration sale-day and acquired some new and exciting instruments for Henlopen Music Therapy.  Thanks to the generous staff at B&B Music, I was able to obtain brand new instruments including: a Doumbek drum, Maraca's, Castanets, egg shakers, 1 Cabasa, 1 Tambourine, and other accessories.  All of the purchases came as a direct result of funds from Music Therapy groups.  Henlopen Music Therapy is also in the process of…See More

Busy, Busy, and more Busy!!

Henlopen Music Therapy Services has been quite busy these days! Two weeks ago, I began facilitating my 1st 'Music and Movement' group for young adults on the Autism Spectrum. After 2 positive sessions and with the help of the hard-working staff at Autism Delaware, I can safely say that the experience has been a positive success! Through recreationally-based music activities, I am helping these individuals improve on social skills, life skills, and vocational task skills.  We have several…See More

The waiting game…..How to not lose your sanity!!

One of the biggest challenges of any new private practitioner is the "waiting game".  I identify the "waiting game" as the time in which we wait to her from prospective clients, agencies, fellow private practices, and various professionals regarding paid opportunities. The "waiting game" can be emotionally crippling and can accompany feelings of heartache, desperation, anger, self-doubt etc.  Hoping for a phone call, e-mail, or social networking message can become all-encompassing and can…See More

Why Improvisation?

Many of you might wonder how musical improvisation can help clients in counseling therapy.  It's not everyday that you hear about a psychotherapy session that consists of playing xylophones, pianos, djembe drums, and singing freely.  Most individuals would seem skeptical on a session that results in a jam session.  However, there is a symbolic and specific purpose for the use of melodic and rhythmic improvisation during a therapeutic session.  Each aspect of music including melody, timbre,…See More

What is Music Therapy Part. II

Hello Everyone, I know I promised a new blog post during the previous week, but an unexpected temporary job opportunity popped up that I could not turn down.  This past week I learned that you can indeed go home and make a difference, even if its temporary.  During the last blog post, I briefly defined music therapy and the many facets and purposes of the practice in everyday life.  I discussed the therapeutic relationship, goals, and the various methods that music can help facilitate a…See More

So you may be asking yourself, what is music therapy

So, you might be asking yourself, "What exactly is music therapy?" This comes as no surprise to me and the numerous colleagues and mentors who have been asked similar questions by various people.  Whenever I am asked this question, I always find myself searching for all of the ways to describe a profession that has a bounty of therapeutic potential.  Some of the comments I have received in the past 4 1/2 years include: "so, you play instruments with people?", "Is it kind of like massage…See More

I can't express how grateful I am

I cannot express how grateful I am in a blog post, but I will give it a try.  Yesterday while inquiring about percussion and rhythmic instruments for my private practice with a reputable music store, I struck up a conversation about nylon strings.  Realizing that I could not put the strings on my beginners Fender acoustic, a sales associate and guitar specialist went out to the storage shed, brought in a beautiful classical yamaha guitar, and said "It's your's if you wan't it. I would rather…See More
