Art Business News

Check out the Winter 2015 issue of Art Business News for my piece about art therapy!

I’ve been long fascinated by music therapy, and how music impacts the brain and limbic system. I studied music therapy for a few semesters in college, and was blown away. We studied patients with Alzheimer’s who had stopped eating and interacting with others, only to be connected with us again through the music they used to listen to or perform in their youth. We studied a young man who suffered brain damage and could no longer speak, but could still sing to communicate. And that is just the tip of the iceberg!

Needless to say, diving into the subject of art therapy was interesting and important.
