I have worked as a music therapist with older adult populations for over 30 years, I'm particularly proud of the "Music Based Assessment of Cognitive Functioning," the assessment tool that I developed for music therapists to use with people who have dementia. I love teaching music therapy colleagues how to use this tool, and trying to convince them that psychometric research is actually fun to do.
