Advances in Music Therapy
In 1697 William Congreve wrote “Musick has charms to sooth a savage breast” and it turns out he may have been right. Music therapy has come a long way in the past few years and is now making it into the mainstream. From pain management to autism, music is showing promise in treating myriad conditions. Join us on Monday when we learn more about the advances in music therapy. Today’s show is from our archives, so we won’t be taking calls.

I really enjoyed listening to the show today and appreciate your choosing four such diverse music therapists. As a practitioner of music healing and music medicine, I admire and respect what music therapy has accomplished over the last 62 years. Alicia Ann Clair said during the show that the first music therapy program in modern time started in 1946 simultanously in Kansas and California. Since that time hundreds of thousands of people have been helped to better cope with their illnesses. Of course music and sound and rhythm have been used for healing purposes since the beginning of time.
I hope that, as a result of this program, many more people will be inspired to search out a music therapist or music healer to help make their lives better!
