Musical Therapy
(2008-08-11)
(WOUB) - For most people, music is entertainment.

But at the Hocking Valley Community Residential Center, music is used as therapy as a way to encourage troubled teenagers to turn their lives around.

And John Horne is a "therapist" guitar player who went to the Nelsonville facility every day as part of an Artist in Residence program.

Horne worked with 22 boys, giving lessons on guitar and teaching song writing.

He says this allowed some of the students to open up about their feelings.

The Artist in Residence program was sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council.
