About the Instructor

 Ariel Weissberger, MA, MT-BC, LCAT has been in the field of music therapy for over 9 years and specializes in developing music centered programs for individuals and institutions of multicultural backgrounds and needs within the New York area. Ariel has done extensive work for renowned institutions like NYU Langone Medical Center, the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF), Northern Westchester Hospital, and Harlem United Community AIDS Center. He holds a MA degree in music therapy from New York University and BM degrees in music therapy and music performance from Berklee College of Music. Ariel is a professional drummer/percussionist highly active in the New York music scene and the founder of Berko Music Therapy (musictherapynyc.com).

“Ariel is astute in his knowledge of music skills in addition to his specialized therapeutic methods, especially in rhythm, drumming and percussion. This provides a strong foundation for building the therapeutic relationship, through which all progress stems. There’s a power in his creativity unlike any other drummer I’ve met, and when he’s asked to develop a beat his survey of the music and the mood always results in a mindblowingly perfect beat.”

Lucinda Anne Butler, MT-BC

“I was hesitant of whether I could truly learn these rhythms and styles. Now, I am very excited to have these styles in my back pocket for working with Hispanic clients! I work in an area with a large Hispanic population and I was very hesitant to work with them because of my lack of knowledge about their music. They are still the experts, but I at least know some styles, terminology, and ways to add to the music. Hearing everything put together at the end of each style helped me see how everything fits together. I also really enjoyed the ideas of how to apply these styles to your practice. A wonderful course – thank you!”

Rachel Nowels, MT-BC
