A Kingston man is helping disabled individuals find a new part of their identity, thanks to the tune of music therapy.

Rick Soshensky showed off his studio where people can come, be themselves and fall deeper in love with music along the way, no matter what life throws at them.

“Everyone can dance when they have the right music,” said Soshensky, who has devoted his life to helping people find their rhythm.

The musician left a career as a performer and struck up a new cord in music therapy for disabled individuals after going back to school. He received a master’s degree in the field in in 2002.

Adam is a client of seven years who refined his passion for songwriting with Soshensky’s help.

Through his guidance, Adam’s found his musical identity. They create rock music, like his favorite band, the Outlaws.

The studio is a safe space for individuals of all capabilities to find their voice.

“I get to express my emotions and how I feel about things,” Adam said.

Soshensky works directly alongside his clients.

The duo jammed in an hour-long session, and shared Adam's originals to his YouTube channel for family and friends to enjoy.

They have such a close relationship, that Soshensky shared part of it with those that read his book.

“One day, as Adam and I talked about how astonished his family and friends were at his newfound identity, I said, ‘maybe they thought you didn’t have it in you?’ And his response… ‘I did.'”
