Using Music to Relax
Allie McCrea has been involved with music for most of her life. After completing her Bachelor of Music degree in Washington D.C., she moved back to Philadelphia to pursue a Master's Degree in Music Therapy at Temple University. She is finishing up her second year as a graduate student, spending most of her days helping people use music in many ways, especially for self-care. These videos are brief tutorials on how music can be used for self-care to help people relax and re-center, especially for people who may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, fear, isolation, and uncertainty. Allie fully believes in the words of playwright John Logan, who writes, "Music is the Medicine of the Mind" and hopes to share the power of music to both patients and their caregivers through these videos.
