It seems obvious to me that all music therapy is music-centered. However, several discussions keep popping up on listservs and facebook groups and music therapy blogs that seem to indicate that my perception is not shared by all music therapists (which is great, because how boring would this field be if everyone were exactly like me?!). On this episode, I will ask some questions I've had about Music Centered Music Therapy of my guest, Karen Goodman.
Ian Franklin Wilkerson – Music Therapy Programs. Ian is Founder of Bay Area Music Therapy. He's a Board Certified Music Therapist and son of a Reichian therapist, who comes from a family of healers.
He has refined his musical skills through years of extensive study and performance, and works from a holistic perspective, integrating breath-work into his music therapy. Ian earned a Bachelors of Music in Music Therapy and Songwriting from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
Ian specializes in helping people find their own unique and empowered voices through improvisation and songwriting. A person-centered therapy provider, he specialize in supporting creativity, self-expression and self-empowerment. Ian received training in Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) from The Center for Biomedical Research in Music (CBRM) at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.
He is a member of the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA). He is a singer/songwriter and guitar player, recording and performing original compositions. Ian oversees and delivers the Music Therapy Programs deliverd by Paramount Booking International.
In this interview, Ian and I discuss and explore some various therapies he utilizes in a music therapy approach to healing. Ian gives examples of what music therapy can be helpful for, and he breaks down fo us what is involved in a session of music therapy. Stay tuned and enjoy the call!
P.S. Ian has provided a generous offer in the ending of this call! Be sure to listen so you can take advantage of it.
The Music Therapy Show has been on the air for 6 years! In 2008, I started this show to talk about music therapy. On this episode, I'll give some updates (since I haven't broadcasted in a while) and share some thoughts about the future of this show.
Kris Warren, a documentary filmmaker, is producing an exciting new film about how clinical Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy are being used as options for treating symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and many other populations. He is also a music artist who discovered Music Therapy recently in August 2013. Kris wrote a song about how music is his therapy not knowing that Music Therapy is a viable and effective treatment option. Since that moment, he went on a journey throughout the USA interviewing experts on Music Therapy and Neurologic Music Therapy for the upcoming documentary titled Music Is My Therapy: MusicTherapyDocumentary.Com. Funds are also currently being raised on Kickstarter to film internationally.
Kris is joined by Professor Michael Thaut from Colorado State University. Dr. Thaut's internationally recognized research focuses on brain function in music, especially time information processing in the brain related to rhythmicity and biomedical applications of music to neurologic rehabilitation of cognitive and motor functions.
