March 1st is World Music Therapy Day!

That’s coming up very soon!  Do you have a plan for how you will celebrate? Well I’m here to help you with that.  Keep reading for some ideas of how you can celebrate World Music Therapy Day!

HUG A MUSIC THERAPIST: Music therapy is an underappreciated and often misunderstood profession.  Show a music therapist how much you appreciate them, it’s as simple as that!

TELL A FRIEND ABOUT MUSIC THERAPY: Help us spread awareness of our beloved profession by telling someone about what we do.  “Hey! I know someone who has this super cool job, it’s called music therapy, you ever heard of it?”

ATTEND AN EVENT: Many music therapy associations offer events that are intended to raise awareness of our profession.  Keep an eye out for events put on by your local association or by music therapy programs in your area.

MAKE A DONATION: There are many organizations whose purpose is to raise funds for music therapy programs in Canada.  Some wonderful examples include the Canadian Music Therapy Fund and Music Heals.  Alternatively, you can make a donation directly to a music therapy program in your community (you might find these in hospitals, long term care homes, mental health facilities, group homes, etc.)

Got other plans for World Music Therapy Day or looking for more ideas? I’d love to hear from you!
