Running too fast.
Need to slow down.
Cutting back to 3 days a week to care for Julian part time when momma goes back to work next month.
Been playing 'catch-up' with my business.
Don't EVER wanna play catch-up with my family.
Business can wait.
Regarding music therapy...
Many hospitals (including the one I currently work at...) in the U.S. fund music therapy directly without reimbursement from insurance. Many hospitals also utilize volunteer musicians to come play. Not the same thing, but a great start. There is plenty of room for melody in any hospital, and frankly there are more musician volunteers than music therapists. They help meet the needs of the community. The music therapy can't meet the needs of the community by ourselves; there are less than 10,000 of us nationwide. I just wish the volunteer programs would at least consult with music therapists as to the possible contraindications of using music in such a fragile setting. That can't be mandated, it can only be offered, and it's up to the volunteer programs to accept. There's room for us all, though.
The difference between the two?
Musicians entertain. They perform for patients, and the attention is on the performer/performance.
Music therapists treat medical conditions in patients using music as their treatment tool/modality. They work/play with patients, and the attention is on the patient.
Same medium, different context.
