“Music can truly be therapy and help you get through the emotional roller coasters of life. Chances are, if you’re going through something that is putting your emotions on alert – someone else has been there before and sung about it!”-SingSnap newsletter 4/26/2023
It’s hard to remain sad when you are singing, even singing a sad song. Neil diamond in his “Song Sung Blues” song expresses this thought.
Martha Graham, (Double Strung Harpist🎵 Certified Therapeutic Musician – CCM), on Instagram as HarpPeaceGiver gives examples of her therapy work with music. here is one example:
