Providing Music Therapy Since 2004

Since 2004, Resounding Joy has improved the lives of individuals and under-resourced communities with free or shared-cost music therapy services, supportive music, and recreational music opportunities throughout the San Diego region (recently expanding to Central Indiana). By leveraging the power of music, we empower our clients to overcome adversity, achieve their full potential, and strengthen their communities.

Over the years, we have initiated four core programs to reach underserved populations including children managing serious health issues (Sounds of Healing); veterans, military, and first responders (Sounds of Service); seniors with dementia and hospice patients (Sounds of Legacy); and partnerships with local service organizations to reach at-risk populations including unhoused families and justice-impacted youth (Sounds of Community). Each program offers a continuum of music engagement from clinic to community, with board-certified music therapists providing services at clinical facilities, client homes, our Music Wellness Center, community partner sites, and virtually.


Music programs focused on rehabilitation and transition for service members, veterans, first responders, and their families, including work with dozens of organizations.



We improve the well-being and quality of life of children who face significant health issues. This program incredibly impacts these kids through in-home and virtual music therapy services.



Music therapists empower and engage our senior community affected by dementia or Alzheimer’s through sessions that enrich their mind, spirit, and overall quality of life.

We amplify community welfare and resilience by partnering with local agencies to share music therapy, wellness, and opportunities for recreational music.

What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy can address various health and educational objectives, including promoting overall wellness, reducing anxiety and stress, relieving pain, expressing emotions, enhancing memory, improving communication, and supporting physical rehabilitation. Music therapy can improve the quality of life for people with physical or mental health issues.

Resounding Joy’s certified music therapists have completed a specialized undergraduate degree program, a 1,200-hour internship, and a national test administered by the Certification Board of Music Therapists. Their training encompasses biology, psychology, neurology, music theory, medicine, and proficiency in voice, guitar, piano, and percussion. If you or someone you love would benefit from an individual or group music therapy session, please reach out to us today.
