In-home music therapy for the Kansas City & Topeka area
We travel to clients’ homes for private music therapy sessions. These sessions involve making music together – singing, moving or playing instruments to address the client’s needs and interests.
Consultation check-in video calls for Caregivers
This is a perfect opportunity to access our expertise via a private video call with one of our music therapists (especially folks outside of our local area of Kansas City/Topeka). During our chat, we can dig deeper into your personal caregiving situation and give any next steps specific to your situation and provide ways to share music with your loved one in meaningful ways.

“This was great for the older crowd – remembering old memories and combining songs with personal stories. My grandma was relaxed and in really good spirits.”
“I have known patients who have lost most of their ability to communicate. By using music therapy they are offered an opportunity for connection and to express their emotions. During end of life this can be an invaluable tool for closure and reducing anxiety.”
“Music therapy is able to touch a place of remembering, comfort and joy that few other modalities access. It is invaluable support for enhancing quality of life for patients.”
