Saturday, February 28, 2009 - March is Music Therapy Month!

Music therapy is the planned use of music to affect brain functioning for the rehabilitation of cognition, speech/language, or sensorimotor skills. The minimum requirement for a music therapist is a bachelor’s degree in music therapy at an accredited university program, a 1,040-hour internship, and satisfactory completion of the board certification exam. Board certified music therapists follow a code of ethics and a standard of practice, and complete continuing education requirements.
To celebrate Music Therapy Month, listen to your favorite music every day, play an instrument or sing a song, thank your local music therapist, or call in to my show!

Saturdays at 4 pm Central, 5 pm Eastern 646-652-2850
