About The Author
Lindsay Zehren, MT-BC, NMT
Director of Special Projects
Lindsay received her bachelor degree in music education and theater from Saint Mary of the Woods College in Indiana. She taught music at the high school and elementary school levels in Indiana, South Africa, and Jamaica before pursuing her equivalency degree in music therapy from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. She moved to San Diego from Indianapolis to complete her music therapy internship with MusicWorx and is thrilled to now be a staff music therapist for MusicWorx as well as the special projects coordinator for Resounding Joy.
Lindsay also is a 200-hour certified yoga teacher and level-one certified in healing touch and reiki. She is passionate about incorporating her knowledge of yoga and energy therapies with music to create a holistic approach to music therapy for her clients and their families.
Lindsay’s favorite yoga mantra is lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu, which translates to “may all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may my thoughts, words, and actions in some way contribute to that happiness and freedom.” Ellen Browning Scripps said, “The most important and beautiful gift one human being can give to another is, in some way, to make life a little better to live.” These quotes help to guide me through my life, and I whole-heartedly believe that through music, I am able to increase the quality of life and happiness of my fellow human beings.
