Robin and I spoke at length on Friday about music therapy and children with special needs.
Another interesting encounter was with the young man who installed my new induction oven -- when I mentioned that I am a music therapist, he said, "Music kept me out of trouble!" He shared with me that he was a drummer, and keeping up with his music during adolescence kept him from having too much time on his hands to get into some of the troublesome things some of his peers were getting into at that age. He believes the gift of music has helped him become who he is today. Success!!
