Greeting in July!
Here is a July calendar from Piedmont Music Therapy (PMT) clinic. The music therapists at PMT are working hard to provide music therapy treatment to individual(s) who in need in the community. The services include traditional music lessons, adapted music lessons as well as music therapy sessions customized for individuals’ selective goals for participation. Our music therapists on staff are serving three different locations including a main clinic in Charlotte, community space in Rock Hill, and mobile locations as well (check out the calendar with paired colors). PMT Main is by appointment only and also available for community events!!!
The following link is the social media channels on Instagram and Facebook. They share spotlights of our work. In addition, PMT is a CBMT Approved Provider for board certified music therapists to receive credits for their continuing education & renewal certification. Those are either in-person, hybrid or asynchronous. PMT did not color-code the additional educational opportunities into the calendar, but maybe in the future calendar.
There are many other music therapists in Charlotte, North Carolina beyond the staff at PMT. In Music Therapy Association of North Carolina (MTANC), visit finding music therapist page,which is helpful for contacting other music therapists. Potential clients are also encouraged to access The Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) directory to ensure the music therapist currently maintains their certification. In summary, this profession is increasingly growing. Just like building a village in the community, a lot of our work is advocacy and education!
Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its Virtue.
Last but not least, in June, there was an annual event called the Music Therapy Hill Day. It was a great time for advocating music therapy professions and networking with elected officials. What PMT learned was that the more advocates about music therapy the more chances to get recognition in our community. The goal of writing this post is to further advocate for the evidence-based use of music to support a person’s health and wellness. Finally, PMT appreciates and is grateful for this space – please share this blog with other readers or comment below about questions you may have for music therapy service.
