Jennifer Buchanan is a distinguished music therapist with a career spanning over three decades. Her clinical specialization encompasses mental health, corrections, and corporate wellness. This expertise is captured in her book, “Wellness, Wellplayed,” where she delves into the profound influence of music, neuroscience, and the power of a playlist. Her recent collaboration with Victim Services of the FBI exemplifies her mission: to extend the reach of music therapy where it’s most needed, ensuring that the art and science of music become universally recognized and used as a powerful bridge to well-being and connection.

This five-session series delves into how leaders, educators, artists, wellness practitioners, and many more can harness the transformative power of music in both their workplace and personal lives.

“I’ve tailored each session with two purposes in mind. First, I aim to enlighten attendees on the power of music, helping them integrate it seamlessly into their professional work and relationships. Second, I offer tools and insights that allow individuals to tap into the profound effects of music for their optimal health,” said Jennifer Buchanan, President of JB Music Therapy.
