Women That Inspire Us
Happy International Women's Day! This year we reached out to our team and readers and asked them which women inspire them. Some wrote about people in their every day lives, while others wrote about artists, actresses and activists. We've also compiled a playlist full of empowering songs by our favorite female artists.
“I’m majoring in music therapy”, a choir peer enthusiastically said while putting her hand down after being asked what plans we had for college. Music therapist - a profession that many in choir had heard of, but had no idea of what it really was, nevertheless the significance and incredible impact it has on people. Music therapy is the astonishing idea and ability to heal people both physically and psychologically with the power of music. Music therapy is used just like any other type of therapy. For example, a psychologist uses talking as a tool of communication to make others feel better and to find a way to help them. Music therapy does the same, but instead of using conversation, music therapists use rhythms, melodies, dynamics, and more to help the wellbeing of a person.
