Privilege in Music Therapy

A few Saturdays ago, the Music Therapy Association of Minnesota held its two-part Fall Conference online. The presentations were “Whiteness As a Source of Harm in Music Therapy Practice, Education, and Leadership,” by Daniel Goldschmidt, MT-BC and “(Re)Centering Culture in Music Therapy,” by Natasha Thomas, PhD, MT-BC and Chantise Hunt, MA, MT-BC. Clearly these are …

Creatives for Creatives

Accountability by Erin Lunde with Sound Matters Music Therapy, LLC.

Creatives for Creatives.

You pick a plan and I enact it. You choose whether you want group accountability to focus on your creative endeavors or if you want an individual check-in from me on a regular basis. You pick the plan. I’ll keep you accountable.

I have three kids. I facilitate distance learning. I had to give up a lot of work in 2020. I have three part-time, stick-them-in-when-I-can jobs. I have a private practice. I have innumerable responsibilities.

I don’t have protected time or space to create what matters to me. I don’t make money on my creative endeavors. I don’t have anybody else who needs me to do the creative work I want to do.

This is why I need you.

Do you write? Do you compose? Do you craft? Do you blog? What did you do for fun when you were 10 years old? What do you want to do for fun now?

Choose either a group plan or a personal check-in.

The next group starts on Monday, February 1, 2021.

    Biography

    The principal music therapist at Sound Matters Music Therapy, LLC is Erin Hade Lunde, MT-BC. She works primarily with adults with developmental delays.

    Erin and her clients work together to build a relationship inside the music they share. She works with clients who do and do not use speech and attempts to bridge any verbal divide with musical elements. Erin attempts to find a common language with each client and to use that soundscape to better understand who the client is as an individual.

    Erin travels to private homes, group homes, and day programs. She provides individual music therapy sessions as well as small group music therapy sessions.

    Erin earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music With Honors from The University of Iowa, where she studied classical vocal performance. From Iowa City, she moved to Newport, Rhode Island to perform full-time in the Beechwood Theatre Company. She then moved to Portland, Oregon, where she pursued her music therapy education. Erin completed her coursework at Marylhurst University in Portland, Oregon. In order to accomplish a Bachelor of Music Therapy degree, a candidate must complete 1,040 supervised clinical hours in a nationally approved internship. Erin completed her internship at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, working primarily with hospice patients, hospital inpatients, and clients with Parkinson’s Disease.

    Voice is one of Erin’s primary instruments and tools to use in music therapy, though she has played violin since she was very young. Erin also has experience playing percussion, and uses some of these instruments in her clinical work. She plays guitar and piano, which are among those instruments music therapists use on a regular basis.

    Do you need an article or an interview for your newsletter? Do you have an article or an interview that you need to have reviewed? Edited? Re-shaped?

    I can do that.

    What about a deadline? Do you want some accountability? I’m all about accountability. If you need somebody to tell you when it’s time to be done, I can do that. Building a calendar and setting up deadlines is what I do everyday.
