1. In this video Michael Anthony Lahue, MT-BC (Board Certified Music Therapist), is conducting a group music therapy session engaging seniors with dementia in singing and drumming at United Hebrew Geriatric Center in New Rochelle, NY, USA.

    The United Hebrew nursing home in New Rochelle is using music therapy to help patients struggling with mental issues, such as dementia. With each session lasting roughly 40 minutes, residents do not just listen to music, but play and sing along as well.

    Doctors at the facility say the therapy tends to ease restlessness, improve mood and even increases appetite.

  2. Performance Wellness, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the mind-body health needs of performers and professionals from all walks of life. Our clinically proven programs, employing the Montello Method for Performance Wellness (PW), integrate techniques from the fields of music therapy, neuropsychology and yoga science. The cornerstone of the PW approach is Essential Musical Intelligence, the innate ability to use music and sound to bypass the limitations of the rational, conscious mind and instantly connect with your creative source to manifest healing, mastery, and joy in performance and in daily life.

    The three-level certificate training program in the Montello Method for Performance Wellness is a multi-modal, research-based approach designed to offer performers, arts educators, creative arts therapists, and performing arts medicine practitioners a deeper understanding of the implications of stress in performance, as well as practical tools for allowing the mind-body to become a resilient “instrument” in the face of stressful situations.

    Dr. Louise Montello (1956-2014) was an internationally known authority on music and healing and award-winning author of Essential Musical Intelligence: Using Music as Your Path to Healing, Creativity and Radiant Wholeness (Quest Books, 2002). Founder of Performance Wellness, Inc. and creator of the Montello Method for Performance Wellness, Dr. Montello’s mission was to foster personal and global transformation through the healing power of music, yoga, and behavioral medicine. Louise was also a board certified music therapist, certified psychoanalyst, and professor at The New School in New York City, as well as a jazz pianist and composer. She conducted clinical research on treating and preventing music performance anxiety in the Department of Psychology at New York University for over fifteen years, and trained conservatory students, arts educators, performing artists, and health professionals the world over.

  3. The singer's voice represents a biologically embedded self-identity. Therefore, injury to the vocal chords affects the whole person on a physical, psychological and an emotional level. Seeing and hearing the vocal folds in action is an effective way of preventing or mitigating vocal injury and can also reduce anxiety an increase self-esteem. These are my vocal chords as recorded in July 2016. Every professional who uses their voice to work and perform should have an annual healthy voice exam. A baseline of vocal health can also be useful for comparison when addressing vocal health issues.
