The Maryville Music Therapy program hosted a performance of Creative Music Making on Wednesday, April 4th in the Maryville University Auditorium. Creative Music Making is a cooperative effort by Maryville Music Therapy program, the St. Louis Symphony and St. Louis Arc. The St. Louis Arc is a non-profit agency that provides support and services to more than 3,000 adults and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and their families, throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area. It was a truly memorable experience for our students, the musicians of the St. Louis Symphony and the clients of St. Louis Arc.
Below is a link to a YouTube video/slide show the behind the scenes efforts used in this creative music making process. Enjoy!

Nijmeh Rapp (in the red dress) joined her in their rendition of Rossini’s Duetto Buffo Di Due Gatti which probably means something like Duet of the Buff Kitties (okay, I’m not fluent in Italian, but I figured I’m allowed at least one guess . . .)
In any event, check out the attached video. Not just anyone can sing this and pull it off—it has to be performed with maximum ATTITUDE!
A recent CNN News report on Anderson Cooper’s 360 Program explored the treatment of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by showing medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta experiencing re-hab at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. He described the team concept of treatment and clearly showed the role of music therapy.
Maegan Morrow, MT-BC, Sam Houston State University alum and music therapist at TIRR explained her work as she facilitated a session with Dr. Gupta as client.
On his blog, Dr. Gupta describes music therapy as his “favorite therapy!” Visit http://pagingdrgupta.blogs.cnn.com/2011/02/18/19059/ for the video and blog.
