Ep. 10: Can learning an instrument be therapeutic? Can Asami and Matt figure this one out?

In much of our work as registered music therapists, we sometimes find that our therapy sessions look very similar to music lessons. We often ask ourselves whether this is a good way to practice, as well as wondering whether music teaching leads to good therapeutic outcomes.

So, this episode we're asking:

Can learning an instrument be "therapeutic"?

You'll hear our breakdown of the concept of "therapy" as well as gaining greater insight into the similarities and differences between music teaching and music therapy.
