Family Engagement Opportunity: Celebrating Music Therapy Month

Opportunity to participate in Music Therapy Month

This opportunity will be an occasion for us to celebrate Music Therapy Month in March 2024. We’d like to take this time to intentionally recognize the important and impactful care our music therapists, Karin Roberts and Michaela Wallis, provide for children and families across BC and the Yukon.  

We’d like to extend an invitation to our Family Partners to participate in this celebration by sharing songs, heartfelt words, and phrases that resonate with your family’s experience at Canuck Place. 

From the song submissions, we will make a Spotify playlist! 

Alongside this playlist, Karin and Michaela will make an original song using the words and phrases that our family partners submit as a communal way to celebrate the importance that music has had in the lives of Canuck Place families. 

Let’s make this Music Therapy Month a melody of love, healing, and togetherness.

  • Share particular words and/or phrases that encapsulate your Canuck Place journey: These words have the ability to convey the emotions and memories that make Canuck Place special.
