Our mission is to create lasting change in the lives of people of all abilities through music.
All of our programs are grounded in the philosophy that participating in music – expressing oneself through making sound – is both liberating and empowering, particularly for those who traditionally have had no voice in our society.
Music For Everyone
We offer a range of music-based programs for infants through end of life, for people of all abilities. Dancing, singing, song writing, listening, drumming, playing, strumming…there are so many ways to participate! Check out our variety of classes, workshops and individual sessions!
What is Music Therapy?
We provide music therapy, in addition to adaptive music. Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.
Music Therapy Contract Services
Music Therapy At Your Facility
