After an adventurous New York City career in all kinds of music and healing arts, Amos Fisher returns to his native NC with music psychotherapy training from the seminal humanistic program at NYU Steinhardt. His style is informed by the evidence-based Nordoff-Robbins improvisational approach, noted in the 1950s for its efficacy with nonverbal, multiply handicapped children; also by such composers as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros and R. Murray Schafer.
Amos believes that music adds dimensionality to therapy, sinking deeper than words or concepts alone. He is excited to offer this as part of the program at Pasadena Villa, at a time when we are all fatigued with isolation from the coVid-19 pandemic. His mission is to create group cohesion in a clinical setting which can grow into genuine community in the world, fostering mass mental health from where it starts—in the individual’s Listening.
