Ben Folds Supports Music Therapy

Hi everybody!

Ben Folds has been re-posting music therapy articles and video clips on his Facebook page.  According to his website, he has also taken intro-level music therapy classes, and he attended the 2011 AMTA National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia (pictured below).

What an amazing advocate for our profession! It is awesome that he uses his voice and status as a famous musician to help shed light on topics he truly cares about. Thank you, Ben!

A recent posting on his Facebook page reads “Ben will be in Washington D.C. in mid-April with arts advocates and music therapists from around the country talking to congress about the importance of music in education and healthcare”.

Here’s the link to a PBS special on music therapy that Ben recently shared on Facebook…
