Why do you BT? Music is a wonderful and often times overlooked medium of interpersonal connection and communication. In addition to the pretty melodies and moving lyrics, music offers a way for even the most diverse of individuals to connect simply by hearing the same thing. Beat Therapy strives to foster these connections and relationships within the greater St. Louis community, using music to help people to express themselves and be clearly understood in less forthright ways. Because music has had an extremely strong influence on my life, I hope to share that with other people through Beat Therapy and the Easter Seals Program so that it might do the same for them!
