Music therapy is a corner of classical music that most people don’t know much about, yet it’s a field that’s an essential part of countless lives! In this opus, Garrett and Scott chat with music therapists Claire Klein and Lyndie Walker, who specialize in childhood development and hospice care. The conversation even touches on the importance of diversity and cultural competency in music therapy. In the prelude, Scott honors his late friend Bob Christiansen, whose career as a radio host spanned 51 years.
