March for Music Therapy

  • 30 Mar 2014
  • nation wide

March is National Music Therapy Awareness Month!
On Sunday March 30, fourteen communities across the country are marching for music therapy. 

Donations of $20 minimum in pledges to walk for adults (kids pledge whatever they can). Our goal is to have 200 people march each raising $50 = $10,000 for music therapy that will absolutely transform peoples lives. 

A quick story : THIS is 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 the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund and in partnership with the Canadian Association for Music Therapy.

Thank you!
