Reflections from Mid Atlantic Music Therapy Conference, Rochester, NY, March 15-18, 2017
The Northeaster storm “STELLA” that covered the northeast with over 26 inches of snow didn’t affect the 500 music therapists that attended Mid-Atlantic Region Music Therapy Conference held at Rochester Convention Center, in Rochester NY March 15-18, 2017.


Somehow I Made it to Mid Atlantic Music Therapy conference at Rochester NY attending Improvisation CMTE. BrrrrRrrr —

CMTE: “Clinical Improvisation: A Developmental Approach to Teaching and Learning”

It was an honor to attend at Continuing Education Course by Dr. Suzanne Sorel, LCAT, MT-BC, called “Clinical Improvisation: A Developmental Approach to Teaching and Learning.”  We learned the importance of listening, keeping time for space and silence, and the power of chord inversions while improvising.



Later that afternoon, a “Music Therapy Mentoring in Research and Networking” session was conducted by the Music Therapy Association to encourage mentoring opportunities, collaboration and encouragement in the Music Therapy research in Dementia, Autism and Trauma/Traumatic Brain Injury.
