Music Therapy Program
Brings Joy to Residents

Music Therapy

The Activities Department's Music Therapy Program brings great joy and enhancement to the daily life of our residents.  This program is headed up by Seth Laucks, MA, MT-BC. a Board Certified Music Therapist.  As a Drexel University graduate student, Seth did his internship here at St. Ignatius.  After seeing the positive impact of having a music therapist work with Residents, we were fortunate to have Seth become a member of our staff and initiate a full time program.  As a music therapist, Seth uses music to improve physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.  Fundraising has allowed us to enhance this program with a personalized music program that will reach even our residents who cannot be involved with group activities.

We are so proud to share the film "Restorative Rhythms" by David Reiss (www.davidreiss.com), which profiles Seth Laucks' music therapy work. The film has been honored with a 2015 Accolade Award of Recognition in the Documentary Short Film category, and will be shown as part of the Garden State Film Festival in Atlantic City from March 31-April 3 of this year.
