• Music as Therapy

    Posted by kevin-schaefer on August 30, 2018 at 7:00 am

    Music can be therapeutic for anyone, but especially for people in rare disease communities. I wake up to it, listen to it throughout the day when I’m working, and I have to have something on when I’m in the car. I like classic and alternative rock, 80s metal, folk and bluegrass, musicals, movie soundtracks and some hip-hop. Basically I’m good with anything but country.

    Here are a few of my favorite albums and artists:

    -“Full Moon Fever” by Tom Petty

    -“Magpie and the Dandelion” by The Avett Brothers

    -“Paranoid” by Black Sabbath

    -The White Buffalo

    -Mandolin Orange

    -Bob Dylan

    -David Bowie

    -“American IV: The Man Comes Around” by Johnny Cash

    -“Let it Be” by The Beatles

    -Bruce Springsteen

    -Imagine Dragons


    -Lin-Manuel Miranda


    What I love about music is that it brings all kinds of people together. It can also encompass so many different moods and experiences. I love waking up to some feel-good and upbeat songs on my Echo Show, and then listening to various playlists and albums throughout the day. It’s especially helpful when I feel depressed or isolated, and I’m sure many others can relate.

    What about you all? What songs are on your playlist? Who are some of your favorite artists? What devices or apps do you use to access music? I use primarily Spotify and Amazon Music.
