Grant Instrumental to Music Therapy

Last year in December, Brian Shypula, manager of strategic engagement, received a cheque from Brant Community Foundation for $3,500 from grant chair Paula Thomlison and executive director Joanne Lewis, during a ceremony at the Friendship Centre in Brantford.

This allowed Sensity to purchase instruments from Long & McQuade Musical Instruments in Brantford in January. An acoustic and electric guitar, keyboard, hand percussion instruments, speaker/amp and musical accessories now have a home at our resource centre.
 

Music therapy student intern, Kyla brought a coffee house vibe into the resource centre on Jan. 23 as she performed popular favourites like: Fly Me To The Moon, I’m Leaving On A Jet Plane, Here Comes The Sun and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

John Jr., Allison, Alecia and Meaghan were among the few who performed alongside her using drums, shakers and on the piano.

Kyla is joining Sensity from her final year of Bachelors of Music Therapy (BMT) at Wilfrid Laurier University. Kyla has experience working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Dementia and Alzheimer's. Kyla was on Team Canada for the International Presentation of Performers in Los Angles and has won first in the Norfolk Talent Competition. Kyla has been writing music since she was a child. Kyla has written music for different genres including pop, country, folk and classical. She has also written an EP CD titled Kyla Lance.

During her time with Sensity, Kyla will be involved in Music Therapy sessions and also lead individual sessions with staff using the ImmersX vibro tactile chair by combining music and imagery.

As her final #CerennaSeries Cerenna recaps her experience at Sensity as she shares her involvement with each of the different departments.
Last year we raised over $94,000 for Children’s Intervenor Services through Break Open Tickets at various Nevada locations.
