“Musical Vignettes of our Inner Child: Heart Strings to Our Past” ©
First presented at Southeastern Music Therapy Conference at Georgia College and State University.
Music has provided a roadmap upon which each of us travel our lives. When we hear songs from our childhood, we are connected to those who were our “first loves” and caregivers. The strings of melodies hold memories that become the milestones of a life well lived. Whether a lullaby, Pomp and Circumstance, wedding march, or funeral processional……we all live by a musical stream of memories.

Using the therapeutic tool of music as an alternative and holistic approach to healing and health. This course will explore the blending of art and science from a mere “universal language” to the medicinal cures of the next generation. Music Therapy. Is it art or medicine?
“Lullabies, Nursery Rhymes, Music Old and New” ©
Presented to Atlanta Young Child Symposium
Each of us as adults live a musical ensemble in the making since birth. The opening notes of a lullaby sung by our mother, or the simple playground chants we shared with a best friend both quickly transport us to an earlier stage of life. Hearing a theme song from a movie or the words of a long ago love song, immediately bring emotions to the surface, and connect us to our memory bank. Our lives are music- themed, and hold for us the keys to connections.
