Andrea Lowry, MA, RMT, CP
Andrea is a native Texan who grew-up singing in East Texas but she is also a Belgian citizen. She attended SMU in Dallas and earned an degree in Music Therapy. For 15 years, she provided clinical music therapy and related activities for a variety of populations - from alcohol and drug rehabilitation, adolescent and adult psychiatry to chronic pain patients. Her first performance group, “the Virtual Band” shared her original folk songs at local festivals and benefit venues in the early 90’s. Based in Europe now, she teaches and performs regularly. She completed a Masters Degree from CSUDH and certification as a Psychodrama Director from the Swedish Moreno Institute but most recently completed a Group Sound Therapy diploma with distinction from the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST) in June 2019.
Her teaching and therapy practice is located in London, where she combines Expressive Arts therapy and BAST Sound Therapy techniques to provide her clients with creative and mindful approaches to life's challenges. During the sheltering in place in London she assists charity organizations in the development of telephone support programs for the most vulnerable members of the community. She was named to the board of the Therapeutic Sound Association in 2020. Building community is something she loves - and even during this time of sheltering in place - she can be seen conducting spontaneous neighborhood 'Sharing at the Crossroads' that encourage a sense of joy, play and celebration through sharing simple songs, bad jokes, stories and poetry. All are welcome - while maintaining physical distance guidelines we have stayed socially connected. She is a Vipassana meditator and enjoys cooking and gardening. Life’s too short! Is her most recent CD recorded in Germany and on sale now.
