Unique show & unique glimpse into music therapy

Got the honor of meeting the hosts at AMTA 2019 after listening for several months. Thoughtful podcast with thoughtful hosts who share diverse perspectives. If you are a music therapist, you’ll get great ideas for experiences and song you can use in therapy. If you’re interested in MT, it’s a great way to see behind the curtain in more than a “here’s what a typical day is like”. Keep on keepin’ on! - Chris

10/10 Highly Recommend!

I absolutely love this podcast! My drives are long and music can sometimes be a bit much to listen to. This podcast gives me a break from too much music while remaining active in thinking and exploring new ways to use some awesome bops! Thank you so much for a brilliant music therapy podcast and introducing me to new bops! Y’all are fabulous!

AWESOMENESS! Chicken soup for the music therapist’s freaking SOUL

Why am I just now learning about this and how is it that I’ve been missing out this entire YEAR. This podcast is phenomenal and I’m so glad I have my driving podcast CHOSEN. Please keep it coming! You all are AMAZING!!! Holy crap. I’m a HUGE Gab-to-the-zilla fan. Everybody please subscribe to this podcast!
