Spreading Musical Joy with the Music Therapy Association of MN
Our team recently had a chance to collaborate with the incredible community at the Music Therapy Association of Minnesota's (MTAM) fall Conference. Our company was founded with a passion for making the joy of playing music more accessible to everyone, so we couldn't be more pleased to see our products help positively impact so many lives through music therapy.
Zivix's leaders, Dan Sullivan and Ed Cannon, graciously donated 50 AirJamz units to the attendees of the MTAM Fall Conference. Following the event, we asked the Jennifer Hicks and the donation recipients from MTAM to share their experience and answer a few questions for us—check out our Q&A below!
ZIVIX: What are the main benefits of using AirJamz in Music Therapy?
MTAM member: I appreciate how easily it is adapted for a variety of physical and social-emotional goals—in diverse settings and with varied clients. I also love the "fun" factor— staff always end up joining in when I use it with clients!
ZIVIX: Could you describe the reactions of any patients using AirJamz for the first time?
MTAM member: It was so fun to see a client of mine (a heavy metal fan currently diagnosed with depression) literally light up as they played! Their affect brightened and they actually smiled and laughed!
ZIVIX: Where do you see the Music Therapy industry going in the next 5 years?
MTAM member: My hope is that we will be able to secure licensure for music therapy here in Minnesota so that a greater number of clients will have access to music therapy services.
