#ThursdayTherapyTune (s)…Pop Music! #MWAMTA14 Style

IMG_7312I’m super excited to present about POP music in therapy Saturday at the Midwestern Regional Music Therapy Conference! I figured I would give a sneak peek of several of the songs I will be covering in my presentation since they all have a purpose and a place in therapy 🙂 By utilizing interventions such as active music making with drums and handheld percussion, group rock bands, songwriting, lyric analysis and creative arts, all of the following songs I have had success with in my therapy sessions. Hope you already have some on your list and if not maybe you will be inspired to learn a few new ones! Can’t wait to see some of you at conference this weekend!
