"Music is the great equalizer, you can get down on the floor with little kids, you can sit down and write a song with a teenager, you can help people that don't have the words to express how they feel put something into something creative and express it"
The Music Heals Charitable Foundation was formed to help raise awareness of the healing powers of Music and to help fundraise for Music Therapy and related services across Canada. "Music therapy is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development." — Canadian Association for Music Therapy
