In Episode 21 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist Ahjay Stelino. Ahjay talks about nurturing his young son’s love of music, what it’s like to be a music therapist in New Zealand, and how he avoids professional burnout.
Ahjay is a registered music therapist based in Auckland, New Zealand. He works as a music therapist in the fields of special education and mental health. He has a Masters in Music Therapy from the New Zealand School of Music. He is registered with the New Zealand Music Therapy Registration Board (under his real name of Ajay Castelino).
Ahjay also teaches guitar and runs a music studio. His latest project is sharing his music therapy songs and tips on using music with kids with special needs at www.ahjaystelino.com.
