What is my philosophy of Music Therapy?
My most important belief is that a human being is more than the body in which it resides. In other words, physical material is only the surface level or outer shell of the many ‘levels’ of the self. These levels can be conceived on a continuum from gross to subtle, i.e., from body to mind to spirit, each dissolving into one another without clear boundaries. Thus spirit affects the mind and the mind affects the body, while the body also affects the mind and the mind affects the spirit. All levels, in other words, are one and cannot act independently of one another. I consider the spirit to be the unchangeable truest part of the self or the highest self. To be clear, I use the term ‘core-self’ in my definition as synonymous to the spirit or soul. If essentially it can be assumed that a human being is essentially composed of vibrations, then this gives a rationale for a music-centered approach to therapy.
I believe that people respond so readily to music because it communicates directly to the whole being.
