Music soothes the soul. Musical involvement helps the participant focus on their strengths, thus providing ways in which those strengths can benefit other aspects of their life. Music can be used to express feelings, get in touch with inner self, develop coping skills for challenging situations, reduce stress and build confidence. Creativity is an essential element in well-being, improving quality of life.
Music therapy is for both musicians and those who have no previous musical experience.
If you have performance anxiety, have been wounded from harsh training or were told you were “not good enough,” Lynn can help you build confidence and find joy again in your music through a supportive non-judgmental approach.

Testimonial “I was pleasantly surprised at how Lynn helped me unearth and identify hidden conflicts that I was completely unaware of, and then helped me clear them and move on, through music!”
Below are videos sharing some of the work Lynn did in a Philadelphia hospital. She utilizes easy to play high quality instruments in her sessions. This boosts self-esteem and communication skills.
Lynn Miller, uses Freenotes (xylo-chime) and the Svaraveena (stringed instrument) to promote well-being in the hospital setting. In this example a nurses aide is communicating with a patient through music to help build their relationship.
Lynn plays the Svaraveena with a patient who plays the Metalophone. Both instruments are made by SVARAM instruments in India. The camera pans to a painting in the room that Lynn painted.
