Hello, and welcome to The Music Therapy Show!

What an incredible first step, and thank you for joining us on the journey!

It is about time, too, we think.

Time for music therapy to have a larger voice, a broader voice. And this blog and radio show will be the conduit for that voice.

Join us here for a chance to read about, discuss and learn about all things related to music therapy.

Part of the discussion is the international radio show, The Music Therapy Show with Janice Harris. It happens every Saturday at 5:00 Eastern/2:00 Pacific. We’d love to hear from you, whether you are a Music Therapist, is someone who either is or knows someone who is a client who receives music therapy or is someone who just wants to know more.

The show is broadcast on the internet via Blog Talk Radio, and we greatly appreciate their help in sharing Music Therapy with the world. You can listen to the show live or via archive HERE. The call in number is (646) 652-2850 if you want to call in between 5:00 and 6:00 ET this Saturday.

This week will be the inaugural show. We’ll introduce the host, Janice Harris, MT-BC, from Dallas, Texas, discuss some of the basics of Music Therapy and take some calls. If we have time, we’ll go into more detail about some specific ways that Music Therapy helps geriatric patients.

Looking long term, we'd eventually like to have guests on the show, as well as touch on some of the history of Music Therapy, current research being done in the field of Music Therapy and possibly highlight some Music Therapy organizations and information sources.

We're always looking for content ideas so let us know what you would like to hear on the show or see on these pages by emailing to Whether it be a guest you'd like to hear from or an issue you'd like us to discuss, drop us a line.

While you're here, take a look at our links section to the right for more information about Music Therapy and other related things.

So thanks again for joining us, and we're looking forward to a great conversation!
