The Dungeon is alive … with the sound of music! That’s right, this week we dive back into a Music Therapy discussion with yet another returning guest, Dr. Benjamin Schogler, from Skoog! We discuss how this innovative Music Therapy tool was developed as well its mainstream applications, what’s new with the next generation of Skoogs, and how it can be used in therapeutic settings.
Once again we discuss the power of music as we talk with Lorri Johnson, an accredited Music Therapist and graduate of the Capilano University Bachelor of Music Therapy Program and talk about Music Therapy and its benefits, as well as her own experiences in dealing with seniors in Long Term Care.
