Music News - Talented therapist joins music centre

04 March 2009 - 0 Comments

She speaks Spanish, dances the tango and loves travelling the world with her camera. But for Rebecca Travaglia, her first love is music and she uses it to help people.

Now 27-year old Rebecca has joined Auckland-based Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre (RMTC) as one of the organisation’s four music therapists.

Rebecca qualified from the New Zealand School of Music as a Registered Music Therapist and has worked with children and young adults in the mental health sector and in special education.

Her new role involves providing music therapy to individual clients at the Centre and to groups at Oranga and Waikowhai satellite classes of Carlson School.

Rebecca plays piano and guitar and is a talented vocalist. She replaces Hee Chan Choi, who has left the Centre to go overseas.

Music therapists work with individuals and groups seeking to discover how each person relates and responds to music through engaging them in a musical dialogue.

The centre has a number of support organisations, including the Lion Foundation, Joyce Fisher Charitable Trust, NZ Community Trust, Southern Trust and United Way, and has received numerous private donations. It also holds an annual fundraising auction of music memorabilia, art, and other donated items in November.

For further information about its activities and how to support the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre, please visit www.rmtc.org.nz . Donations can also be made through the website.

Thanks to www.rmtc.org.nz for this story.
