Music Therapy, Redwood City 6/26/13

Posted by Charissa L on June 27, 2013 at 2:05 AM

On June 26, Tyler Leswing and Charissa Leung went to the Wings Learning Center in Redwood City to work with a music therapist (Beth) in guiding some teens in a group session. It was a smaller group than usual since a few of the students were on vacation, but it was still beneficial to the 3 students who participated. Charissa started out by playing the 2nd movement of the Dvorak violin concerto. After each short section, she led a discussion on the moods and content of the music. The students were able to use their imaginations to express how they perceived the music. Then, she led the group in a sing along with the song “This Land is Your Land”, by Woody Guthrie, with Tyler at the piano, Beth on the guitar, and the rest of the group (including dads!) singing the song in harmony. It was a lot of fun!

Afterwards, Tyler played one of his original pieces on the piano. Then he asked us to give him some descriptive words/scenarios and he improvised a piece with those ideas. The group chose an enchanted castle, then a bowling alley. Everyone really enjoyed his music and was stunned by his creativity! Beth gave positive feedback on the session and welcomed them back to her studio anytime.
