Music Therapy + FLEA Ukuleles on WLWT Channel 5

What is music therapy (MT)? What credentials are required to become a MT? Who are their patients? How does music therapy make a true difference in their lives?

Answers and lively FLEA® ukulele demos were featured on “Issues” … an early Sunday morning show produced by local NBC affiliate (WLWT-TV5) in Cincinnati. THANK YOU to the show’s producer, Mr. Jeff Moran, for helping build awareness of this fascinating field. Click here or image below to view the segment:

Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ amazing recovery from gunshot head trauma has been credited heavily to music therapy. Helped her re-assimilate speech skills, cope with intense frustration, smile again. Spotlighted on ABC News by Diane Sawyer and Bob Woodruff in November 2011, plus Nightline with host Terry Moran.

Music therapy “magic” abounds in Cincinnati. Family members that witness the impact of a music therapist working with their autistic child, an elderly parent becoming listless with Alzheimer’s disease, a relative recovering from traumatic brain injury, or a hospitalized child deprived of “just being a kid” as they face a bone marrow transplant know such magic. True Joy Acoustics proudly connected with Channel 5 and these highly skilled MT’s to broaden public awareness.

Our ukulele program is privileged to connect with this profession, especially the two co-stars:  Kathryn Yeager (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center) and Mimi Sinclair (Music Therapy Services). Click names for direct contact info.
