Therapeutic Music Database
Martha's nonprofit organization, Music Therapy Gateway in Communications (MTGIC) has received a grant from the TN Arts Commission to hire recording engineers from Chattanooga's SoundCorps organization to create musical samples/songs/compositions utilizing strong rhythmic drive and varying tempi and timbres. In addition to the SoundCorps work, contributions from some of Tennessee's most well-respected composers have also been received. These compositions will be utilized for therapeutic purposes to benefit persons with disabilities and their caregivers, educators, and medical staff. All samples/compositions will be placed in a database that will have free and open access to all. The database is expected to be released for public use in spring 2022.
