Music Therapy Month is Here!

Music Therapy Month is March and it is here! Music Heals partnered with Blenz as an official iPod Pharmacy depot in British Columbia. For every iPod donation you make you’ll receive a free $5 gift card.

In Toronto we partnered with Vortex Records and Twelfth Fret Guitar Shop. The online zine Toronto is Awesome helped out by letting me post a guest blog on the topic of Music Therapy Month and the iPod Pharmacy. If you’d like to read or share it you can find it here.

Please lend a hand by helping us spread the word about music therapy month, the iPod Pharmacy and Music

iPod Pharmacy- Help Music Therapy

Let me ask you a question. Do you have an old iPod or mp3 player at home that still works that you don’t use anymore because you got a new one? If so, I strongly encourage you to donate the old one to the Music Heals iPod Pharmacy. As you’ll see in the video below, iPods are an incredible therapeutic tool used every where from old folks homes to children’s hospitals.

I’ve teamed up with Music Heals in an effort to help Music Therapy Programs. If you donate a used but still functioning iPod, you’ll be entered to win a Free House Concert from myself.

If you’d like to help out please send your used but functioning mp3 player to:

“Attn: iPod Pharmacy”
Suite 400 – 1788 W. 5th Ave.,
Vancouver, B.C. V6J 1P2

Remember to include your name and contact information so we can get ahold of you when you win the contest.



I’m Collecting Old iPods for Music Heals

How many of us bought an iPod a couple years ago and have since upgraded to using only our iPhone or superior mp3 players? I know I fit into that category.

I thought to myself the other day wouldn’t it be great to put our unused iPods to good use the while chatting with Music Heals co-founder Chris Brandt. Chris explained to me that music therapy and music therapists were often in need of simply more iPods for their patients to listen to.

Starting today I am collecting any old or used iPods and MP3 players for Music Heals. The Music Heals foundation will give the iPods to young children in hospital care and the elders at nursing homes. In return for your donation you will receive free admission to a concert of mine and be entered in a draw for a chance to win a free House Concert from myself. If you are from the Vancouver area or if you are not able to make it to a show in the East, your donation will still count towards an entry for the House Concert.

The campaign starts today, please consult the list of shows below, in the case of some shows where I’m not in charge of the cover charge or the show is already free etc, any iPod donation will receive a free copy of my record “If Baby Could Walk” as well as being entered into the House Concert draw.
