Emmanuel has been a music therapist at VitalCare for almost three years. His passion and dedication for music therapy shines through his work with his clients and they have greatly benefited from sessions with him.
Emmanuel graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from Maryville University before moving to Colorado in 2019. He is currently working towards his Master’s degree at Colorado State University and is excited to continue the growth of his knowledge and skills as a music therapist. Prior to working at VitalCare, Emmanuel spent over five years working with kids with special needs at the Missouri Schools for the Severely Disabled and completed his internship with SSM Hospice. His well-rounded experience makes him a valuable member of the VitalCare team and we can’t thank him enough for everything he does! In his free time, Emmanuel enjoys spending time with his wife and can often be found exploring Colorado through hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing
In March we celebrated World Music Therapy Day (March 1st) and Music Therapy Month in Colorado. Since the beginning of World Music Therapy Day in 2016, people all around the world have been celebrating the amazing benefits and healing power of music therapy. Colorado takes it one step further and dedicates the entire month of March to honoring the amazing work Music Therapists throughout Colorado are providing.
Music Therapy uses evidenced based techniques to work on improving or maintaining functional skills in a fun and engaging way. Sessions include creative interventions, individually designed for a person’s specific needs, and frequently includes the use of a wide variety of music, instruments, movement and singing. Music Therapy can be used to address cognitive skills, emotional needs, social skills, speech and language, motor skills, sensory needs, self-expression, overall wellness, pain, quality of life and much more.
At VitalCare we have an incredible team of therapists and we are so proud of all the hard work and dedication they provide our clients!
