The staff at ISAC expressed an interest in learning about music therapy and sought out ITA to visit their facility and present.
Bradley’s presentation focused primarily on defining music therapy and addressed questions such as: Who is a music therapist? What does it take to become a music therapist? With whom do music therapists work? The audience was engaged in music experiences to help demonstrate the benefits of music therapy as Bradley lead a small group of volunteers in the “Shaker Passing Song” and a group lyric analysis of the song “Helplessness Blues” by Fleet Foxes.
