A Presentation on Music Therapy


On October 30th, Lara Hermanson, music therapist for Cherrywood Pointe Senior Housing, spoke to a group of 30 on the education of therapists and the types of roles she plays in her work. In addition to providing music for the weekly chapel service, Lara works with people who have memory loss, those who are near the end of life and their families, and people who have anxiety. Her style is lively and humorous, and her repertory is extensive, spanning the decades of the 1920’s’s through the 70’s.
