July marks the one year anniversary of Allen Music Therapy’s partnership with Queen Street Music! QSM is a community based music program located in Cambridge, ON that focuses on providing musical opportunities through a variety of different methods such as private lessons, group classes, and workshops. They operate out of two locations within the Hespeler and Galt neighbourhoods of Cambridge.
I approached QSM director Richard L’Abbe in April 2016 with the idea of providing music therapy and adapted music lessons as part of the QSM program, and he very generously has allowed me to do so. We officially launched the program in July 2016, and it has been growing ever since!! It has since expanded into larger scale projects within the community such as community music workshops, school groups, as well as the upcoming “Good Vibes Group”.
This partnership with QSM is a major component of Allen Music Therapy’s operations, and I am very grateful to Richard for his generosity, guidance, and support for the program. I am looking forward to continuing to grow into 2017-2018!
