If you follow us on Instagram then you may have seen our posts for #mtadvocacy. Our practice needed some time to select 1 song per clinician since there are so many songs that come to mind!! Here's what our team members chose:
Count On Me
Ashley Tisdale, MT-BC selected "Count On Me" co-written by Bruno Mars, Mars, Philip Lawrence, and Ari Levine under their alias of The Smeezingtons. 🎧 ❤️ Here's the original music video!
Ashley’s Reasoning: The song is about support and the many lengths people are willing to go to so they can take care of another person. As music therapists, the support we give our clients is unique and tantamount to each individual’s growth. #mtadvocacy #mtbc #musictherapist #journey #professional #January #2018 #recognition
Road Less Traveled
Melissa Reinhardt, MSEd, MT-BC chose “Road Less Traveled” co-written by Jesse Frasure, Meghan Trainor & Lauren Alaina for her song. 🎵 Listen & watch here.
Melissa’s Rationale: This song reminds me to believe in myself! #mtadvocacy #mtbc #musictherapist #journey #professional #January #2018 #recognition
Gretchen Benner, LMSW, MT-BC chose “Try Everything” from Zootopia co-written by Hermansen, Eriksen & Furler! 🎶 Enjoy the music video here!
Gretchen’s Explanation: The lyrics resonate with the trek of advocating, challenge of educating, commitment of creating and resolution of supporting. #Shakira #SocialMedia #Advocacy #Zootopia #Pixar #movie #soundtrack #January #2018 #winter #mtadvocacy This was the 4th song that I finally settled upon. The initial songs that resonated were Diamond Rio's "Meet In The Middle," The Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" and Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles." Although these songs are about romantic relationships they could apply to the adventures of advocating!
