Music Therapist Taylor Kurta, the inaugural recipient of the Canadian Walk of Fame (CWOF) Emerging Artist Award and current PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo, hosted a guest lecture at Metalworks Institute to discuss Mental Health in Music.
Taylor's path to becoming a music therapist is one marked by a profound love for both music and helping others. As a music therapist, Taylor utilizes a range of musical techniques to address the diverse needs of individuals seeking therapeutic support.
During her guest lecture, Taylor provided an overview of the framework that is music therapy. Students gained insights as to why it is important to seek mentorship, view music as a process and not a product, and were encouraged to think of their "WHY" they do music as a motivational tool.
Beyond her accolades, Taylor has also made significant contributions through her work with SoundsUnite, an organization dedicated to fostering collaboration and innovation within the world of sound and music. SoundsUnite brings together artists and industry experts to explore an environment where creativity knows no bounds.
