There are only a few times thus far in my music therapy career when I’ve felt that I provided a truly successful session. One time was just yesterday. I have a client who has some tendencies toward explosive behaviors and language. Using some improvisatory keyboard skills that I am always surprised to find that I have, I was able to help him relax to a state in which he was nearly sleeping. This is not always my goal, but yesterday it seemed to be necessary. What is more is that his mother has been sitting in on some of our sessions together, and she even seemed to have fallen asleep! I was happy to help provide an environment in which both my client and his mother had some respite.
