Who cares? What are the benefits of using music in family or couples therapy?
Studies show that when we play music with others, the natural hormone, oxytocin is released. This is the hormone that is responsible for bonding between a mother and baby and that is released between individuals during love making.
The value of this for families and couples is that we can practice teamwork, affection, concentration, attentiveness, mindfullness, self-expression, and awareness, in about five minutes of non-intrusive, non-verbal music making.
This is incredibly powerful with families! Imagine your 16 year old jamming on a drum and you get to be present to observe, join in, and play with him (or her) again!
I use instruments that are easy to play, I show you how to play them, and I create a nonjudgmental atmosphere, so even the person without rhythm, thinks of herself as tone deaf, and has the biggest discomfort about music making can join in and feel comfortable.
