Music Therapists Bring Serenity, Connection to Students at Shriners

From: Eric Prasoloff and Glenda Bracelin

Music therapy is a staple in the Hospital School Program. At Shriners Hospital for Children, Keeley St. Clair from Earthtones Northwest engages students in a way that calms them, connects them to each other, and enriches their stay in the hospital. Keeley can play and sing virtually any song requested, brings in interactive percussion instruments, teaches guitar and ukelele chords, writes personalized songs, and empowers students to make their own music on the iPad.
She's takes time to get to know the students, is adept at gearing her therapy to whatever level our student are at, and supports classroom goals (i.e. counting, content specific vocabulary, sequencing, switch use). She is a highlight in the week and helps create a safe and fun environment which is conducive to the learning that happens every day in the hospital classroom. A big thank you and shout out to Keeley and all our amazing music therapists for the valuable contribution they make to our program.
