Voices from Music Therapists in Japan

"My friend's house in Fukushima prefecture was totally destroyed by the earthquake, and she had to flee with her elderly mother who needs assistance for living. She is now moving out from an evacuation zone of the nuclear power plant."

"During the earthquake, I was working in a hospital in Shiga prefecture. When the earthquake struck, everyone gathered in the community area to watch TV to get more infromation. Despite all the commotion, I started music therapy in the area, and the whole place became relaxed and at peace in the time of chaos. I strongly felt the power of music at that moment."
