"I had the pleasure of working with Eric doing music therapy in conjunction with my physical therapy. Eric taught me to walk to a beat in an attempt to normalize my gait. He sang beautifully and encouraged me to try as well. We also used drums to try to get my arms to work and a harmonica to help my breath control. Eric was fun, encouraging and a pleasure to know. It was my good fortune to have that opportunity. Thanks Eric for your good work!"
Client with Multiple Sclerosis
"I had the privilege of working with Eric at an outpatient rehabilitation clinic that mainly served a neurological population. He took the time to get to know his patients personally and explore how music could benefit them, and routinely added an extraordinary aspect to their recovery. Eric has combined his passion for music with his compassion for people and the outcome has made him an outstanding music therapist. I highly recommend Eric Feldman for anyone considering music therapy."
Dr. Joy DeJong Lago, PHD (Clinical Psychologist)
"Eric used his creative energy to make recovery fun and purposeful for our clients with brain injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, and other neurological challenges. I appreciated his individual approach to each person and their goals while using respect and a fun approach with his music therapy knowledge. He is truly reaching people in their current challenge and gaining trust to take them forward to higher skills!"
