This is part 1 of my chat with Tanya Silvera. Tanya is a Registered Music Therapist and Neurologic Music Therapist based in Sydney, Australia. Tanya is currently undergoing her PhD research with the National Music Therapy Research Unit at the University of Melbourne (under the supervision of Dr Jeanette Tamplin and Dr Simone Dorsch). The PhD research examines how functional electrical stimulation combined with iPad-based music therapy impacts upper limb function and wellbeing outcomes of stroke survivors. Drawing upon a holistic approach, Tanya combines motivational, interactional, physical and communicative aspects of music therapy when working in a strengths-based model. Tanya has collaborated and worked closely with, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, psychologists and creative arts therapists.
