In Episode 22 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist William Murray. Bill talks about the challenges of being a male in a female-dominated field, how making the decision to start a family ignited his passion for working in pediatrics, and the rock band he started which is doing some extraordinary things.
Bill has been a practicing Music Therapist for 12 years, specializing in pediatrics working with children and youth with special needs. Throughout his career, Bill has developed, implemented and evaluated Music Therapy programs for not-for-profit organizations across Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area.
He holds a Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership from the University of Guelph and an Honors Bachelor of Music Therapy Degree (Minor in Psychology) from the University of Windsor. As Director and Lead Clinician for Accent Music Therapy, Bill is committed to providing industry-leading care.
Superfire // The rock band started by Bill whose mission is to capture the healing power of music to inspire others and change society’s view on the differently abled.
