Shoshana Averbach: Sharing Songs of Healing
For VNSNY Home Care social worker Shoshana Averbach, her life-long love of music began with piano lessons at age eight. Since then, her instrumental skills have expanded to include guitar, flute, and violin. Shoshana also began writing music as a teenager. “I take a challenging life experience and work through it by writing a song,” she says. “It’s a spiritual, therapeutic process.” Along the way, she has created two albums, providing all of the melodies, lyrics, vocals, arrangements, and instrumentation. Shoshana, who has been with VNSNY since 2010, also received a master’s degree in music therapy from NYU, and uses this training with her clients on occasion. Together with therapeutic touch and emotional freedom technique (EFT), she uses music to help reduce anxiety.
Shoshana has performed professionally for decades, playing in more than 90 venues, many of them geriatric facilities. She plays guitar and sings in English, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Spanish, performing as often as three times each month. “It’s not entertainment,” says Shoshana, “it’s musical healing, making the audience feel good.” Shoshana says she herself gets a “helper’s high” from performing. “One of the wonderful things about music is that it’s universal,” she notes. “it touches a deep part of the soul, and can reach people regardless of their physical or mental well-being.”
