Music Therapy Through Tunes
Music Therapy is a group that is going to meet regularly every Friday and Sunday afternoon facilitated by Matt Rands and Justin Jackson to encourage healing through Music. “Music is what feelings sound like” To be part of this program you do NOT need to be a musician or “musically talented” All that is required is a love for music, something that gives you a sense of purpose and to enjoy, with others, an opportunity to share your own personal experience through the medium of music.
“He took his pain and turned it into something beautiful. Into something that people can connect to. And that’s what good music does. It speaks to you. It changes you” – Hannah Harrington
Our main focus with this program is to ignite or re-kindle your passions, drive, and empowerment through our love of music. in our various individual tastes in music we can find descriptions of us as individuals. Our music of choice (MOC) can help aid someone in identifying regrets, hopes, dreams, happiness and strengths as these are common among us upon entering recovery. Through music we can find the building blocks of a strong fellowship of like-minded men with whom we share our experiences as well.
“For me there is something primitively soothing about this music, and it went straight to my nervous system, making me feel ten feet tall” – Eric Clapton
We each connect with a form of music that has a unique sound, style, beat, tempo, and meaning and it makes us feel a certain way. That connection is completely singular to each individual and can take on a different interpretation to a different person. That is the true beauty of this program. Two people can find a different therapeutic value to the same piece of music. We encourage you to take this opportunity to heal through music! Music is a massive accessible tool available to everyone at anytime. Music can alter our moods drastically from bad to good to great, and provide us with a source of comfort, strength, and hope in the moments of greatest necessity.
“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space” – Johnny Cash
