Getting in the Summer Mood Throughout the Decades: Songs to Add to Your Music Therapy Repertoire

As the weather warms up in Toronto we are getting excited for summertime here at Miya Music Therapy! Summertime often involves facilitating some outdoor sessions whether it's by moving some of our sessions in long-term care to an outdoor terrace or by running our Little Tunes program for toddlers and caregivers in a local park.

We hope you enjoy this list of summer-inspired songs from the 1950s-Present day.
