"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alie collaboratively to bring virtual music therapy sessions to our aphasia group in Princeton, NJ, and to the Voices of Hope for Aphasia group in Dunedin, Florida. It was pure joy to see and hear the group members light up and participate in warm-up vocal and rhythm exercises and therapeutic singing. They also appreciated learning the ways that music therapy engages the right hemisphere of their brains, allowing them to access words thru music that they otherwise wouldn’t so easily produce. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Alie again soon."
