The members of Therabeat, Inc. have been working hard to advocate for music therapy throughout the community. We were recently honored to be a part of a Canton Optimist Club meeting, where we had the opportunity to tell the members all about what we do. The Optimist Club is an incredible organization that serves the community in many ways. Adult volunteers join together with the slogan, “Bringing out the best in kids”. The Optimist club is dedicated to serving and empowering youth in any way possible.
Team leader Jennifer Puckett and I were the guest speakers at one of the club’s weekly meetings. We opened our meeting with a “hello song”, giving the members a taste of what a typical music therapy session looks like. We then talked about what music therapy is, why it’s effective, and who we serve. The members were an extremely receptive audience and seemed eager to learn more. We were grateful for yet another great advocacy opportunity!
