Most of us can agree that music is a form of therapy, right? It makes you feel better if you're having a good day, can help you recognize sad or happy feelings...or can change your mood completely! So what is the difference between music that makes us feel good, and music therapy? A music therapist is specially trained to harness the emotional, physiological and relational qualities of music in order to promote wellness and quality of life. That's where Joel Klassen comes in. Joel works with Eden Health Care Services as a full-time music therapist, who travels throughout South Central Manitoba, and is South Central Manitoba's premiere music therapist!
