Ben: BM
BEN is an excellent musician with a heart to use his musical gifts to help others. Although Ben originally majored in Music Business because of his interest in managing artists and performing for a living, along the way he decided that he wanted to use music in a way that helps people. "When I played music for my friends, they often reported that they really enjoyed the music, or that it helped their mood. From this, I wanted to help more people with music, and then quickly learned all of what music therapy had to offer, and how it is much more than just “playing music to make people feel better”.

Music Therapy
We consider music therapy the "fun" therapy because it starts from inside someone who already loves music. The American Music Therapy Association defines it as "the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program."
