Mack Bailey, legendary musician, singer, songwriter, and music therapist uses songwriting and music to rewire the brain.
Songwriting and music brought Mack from the brink of what he calls a time in his life where he found little hope. During that dark time in his life he sat down and wrote a song, “Just Because.” (He did collaborate with Tom Paxton on a section).
“Just Because” brought realization to Mack that writing the song and putting it to music completely changed his life. That experience he felt rewired his brain. He realized that he had control of telling his story the way he wants it to be told and with his own intended emotions.
His own music therapy helped him establish a new path, a new career, and a brand new set of positive imprints as a music therapist with Music Therapy of the Rockies.
He became fascinated with the brain and the use of music therapy to help heal people with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. (PTSD) These studies as a certified music therapist started Mack on his journey to heal veterans who have PTSD.
Listen to Mack’s stories of his own struggles and how he rewired his brain through music and songwriting. Mack shares some of his music and incredible stories about veterans of whom he helped change their lives through his therapy; Music Therapy of the Rockies.
