What We Do

Through the power of music Resounding Joy reduces pain, increases joy and improves the lives of people of all ages. Our music therapists are highly-trained professionals, who after graduating with an approved degree in music therapy, complete a 1,200-hour internship and complete a challenging national board certification test. Musical skills are necessary in a variety of instruments to accommodate various evidence-based interventions, as is a comprehensive knowledge of biology, psychology, and neurology to ensure the experience is effectively therapeutic.

Our powerful and cost-effective music therapy services are offered through four main programs—Healing Notes, Semper Sound, Sound Minds, and Mindful Music —which benefit low-income and underserved communities. Other programs are created as requested by community members. Every session begins with an assessment, and then the therapist works with the client to determine which goals to focus on throughout treatment.
