We bring music therapy and music therapists to rural, urban and remote communities from coast-to-coast through innovative programs and research projects. These initiatives range from music therapy programs for people on the autism spectrum, living with Alzheimer’s disease, challenged by anxiety and depression, rehabilitating speech or motor skills, needing pre- and post-natal care, or living with a brain injury, to name only a few.
We accomplish this by awarding clinical and research grants, scholarships and fellowships to innovative certified music therapists who are then empowered to use their talents and expertise to make music therapy accessible within their communities.
Together, we are transforming lives. With your support, access to music therapy for all Canadians is possible!
We know that music moves us emotionally, physically, spiritually and expressively. Working with a certified music therapist, music moves us intentionally and impacts us profoundly. We invite you to join us to help music therapy move more people.
Last year, we travelled on the Road to Recovery and made amazing progress. This year, we move beyond recovery and push forward to move and grow in new and exciting ways. This year-long campaign aims to raise $150,000. Our focus this year is bringing music therapy to children and youth, especially those from underserved communities. We will provide national clinical grants and grow services at the Music Therapy Centre in Toronto that will impact this important work.
There is no question that children and youth have experienced significant mental health challenges over the past several years and the life circumstances of many created an even heavier load to bear. Finding words to talk through their experiences can be difficult and intimidating. Music therapy is a non-threatening and often more effective way to reach children and youth to provide them with a method of exploration and expression that requires no words.
We are launching our campaign this year with an amazing Lemmon Stage partnership!
