SEMPER SOUND
MILITARY MUSIC THERAPY

Semper Sound enhances quality of life and resiliency for military connected families, veterans, and service members through the power of music.

Semper Sound offers music instruction and music therapy to military service members, veterans, and their families.

In-person or virtual sessions involve improvised music-making, lyric analysis, songwriting, singing, creative arts, guided relaxation to music, or adapted music lessons. Traditional instrument and songwriting lessons are also available and can be adapted to almost all disabilities.

“I am a 13-year retired disabled veteran of the best Navy in the world. I have been a part of the music therapy program supported and provided by Resounding Joy. I had almost given up on life and with the help of Cory Woodrow and the team at Resounding Joy, I now have a purpose in life again… There is no telling how many lives have already been saved by this music program.”

“After sustaining in what some doctors are regarding as the highest level of severity of a Traumatic Brain Injury, I began working with Cory to achieve an aspiration in life and in recovery: to play piano. I have not only learned how to play the piano, not with only one hand but with both, while using the power of music to help regain all the muscles on my left side. As of earlier this year, I was found fit for continued Naval service. Resounding Joy’s services are led by music experts who want to share the joy and power of music with everyone. They also cater lessons to a client’s specific goals. They have changed my life in many positive aspects. I cannot thank you enough for the experiences and impact that you have played in my own recovery.”

JORDAN LO, USN

Research demonstrates that music helps with stress reduction, resiliency, emotional expression, self-help strategies, family bonding, tools for navigating civilian life, and symptom management for those with compounding challenges.

All programs are facilitated by our board-certified music therapists, so you can be sure that we’re informed and experienced with the specific challenges you may have, such as TBI, PTSD, or depression.

Semper Sound has also participated in multiple projects with Creative Forces®: NEA Military Healing Arts Network, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the U.S. Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs and the state and local arts agencies with administrative support provided by Americans for the Arts and the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine.
