Music therapy is a modern, clinically evidence-based practice with traditional roots in music-assisted healing & transformation. Music therapists engage clients in personalized, interactive musical experiences to achieve non-musical health goals. Because music impacts us physically, neurologically, emotionally, socially, and transpersonally, music therapy Interventions can be tailored to meet individualized goals, whether it's emotional support during grief, assistance rehabilitating gait after a stroke, music-prompted focusing & turn-taking, or engaging loved ones with dementia through song. In music therapy, the musical experiences and the therapeutic relationships that develop through them are equally powerful agents of change. The entire person and all their systems and realms of perception are engaged and valued. Words are not necessary, yet enhanced through deep feeling. Devora is especially interested in supporting self-awareness & self-esteem through creative songwriting & vocal and lyrical expression, but the range of musical interventions and uses of music in music therapy are vast.
All proceeds go to music & music therapy equipment and with every donation of any amount, I donate an hour of music performance or musical activities to a deserving community on the Big Island.
