How remarkable that Thanksgiving is this week! The American Music Therapy Association Conference took place in Kansas City, Missouri. The conference hotel had incredible views, easy access to food and plenty of space for mingling, reconnecting and learning.

As a non music therapist, I am leaving inspired and impressed by the professionalism of music therapists. They are diligent in their therapeutic planning and assessment in order to be effective and productive health care professionals. Plus, music therapists are creative and kind to boot!
