Prism Project 2021

Love’s Music Therapy (LMT) is contracted by Families Helping Families NOLA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, as the sole managing company. LMT provides the service of the creative and administrative oversight, direction, promotion, creative development, expansion, university affiliations, interstate collaboration with other Prism Projects, volunteer and staff recruitment, training, and supervision. 


Jeremy Love and Kelly Fischer, Jeremy’s mentor, and the founding director of the Prism Project from 2012 -2018, have been invited twice as guest presenters for the New Orleans Citizen Diplomacy Council, by request of US State Department, sharing the Prism Project to such guest as Nth. African and Middle East Music & Special Needs Educators.


In February 2020, Jeremy Love presented at the Southeastern Region American Music Therapy Association (SER-AMTA) Conference on his Master Clinical Case Study, highlighting six years of cumulated research on the Selection and Application of Electronic Music Technologies (EMTs) for Clients with Neurological Disabilities. Many of the vignettes represented in the presentation were sourced directly from Jeremy’s innovative work with EMTs serving the adaptive and individual specialized needs of children in the Prism Project


In Fall of 2020 Jeremy answered a call sent out by Anita L. Swanson, Ph.D., MT-BC & President of the World Federation of Music Therapy (WFMT) seeking music therapy video stories of resilience in response to Covid-19. The Prism Project was highlighted on WFMT website in celebration of resilience in the face of adversity leading up to World Music Therapy Day on March 1st 2021.


More recently in March 2021, Jeremy and Kelly had the pleasure once again of co-presenting on The Prism Project of Greater New Orleans. This time, they were invited to present for Tulane University’s Child Psychiatric Department’s Grand Rounds Committee. The presentation highlighted the evolution from an in-person program to online virtual programing that occurred in 2020 with the Prism Project. Anecdotal evidence presented, suggested a strong correlation between increased social interaction of children on the Autism Spectrum and the online virtual platform programming.


Most recently the story of the special children of the Prism Project and their journey making a music video in the 2021 season, is currently being told on the local news at CBS TV channel 4WWL.


In order to give the best experience to as many children as possible, the Prism Project traditionally relies on funding from the generosity of organizations, individuals, sponsorships, and partnerships to support our program. With current fiscal shortfalls due to the global pandemic, we have only received one quarter of our traditional funding. 


In response to this need, Love’s Music Therapy has created this page to help with support and finance running costs. 


We are asking for your help, however large or small, to help with our extra production and editing costs. The soon to be nationally-released music video THE PRISM PROJECT PLAYS THE BLUES is an unprecedented and extraordinary magnum opus of the special children’s performers of the Prism Project of Greater New Orleans.


Thank you for your care and support.
