In June of this year, we asked our community to raise the last $10,000 we needed to be ready to hire a new music therapist. And you did it! To celebrate our donors and sponsors who made this happen, we hosted a special party with The Note-Ables. Our new music therapist will be joining us in September after a long search and we’ll be adding many new classes and programs. Currently we’re seeing around 120 people per week at our facility at McKinley Arts Center, along with many more in the community at our contract locations. With our additional therapist, we’re adding:
- Teen Exploring Music Class
- Junior Exploring Music Class
- Electric Music Project Workshop
- Advanced Songwriting
- Teen Creative Connections Music Therapy Group
- Adult Creative Connections Music Therapy Group
In addition, we’ll be adding hours of service at Northern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services, Renown Health, and starting a new partnership with The Life Change Center. As the coming year unfolds, there will be more programming and news to come for certain. For now, we are grateful and excited to begin serving so many more people. Our wait list is long and we’re happily calling people now. If you’re interested in participating in any of our programs, call 775-324-5521. For class and group descriptions, click here.
