Message from the director


The arts are essential to how we learn and grow throughout our lives. From birth to end of life, the arts have so much to offer our individual, social and community health. At Music For Life Creative Arts Therapy, our team of 10 trained staff of music and art therapists, educators and professional provide individual and group arts based sessions, lessons and classes to help people build arts and functional skills, make friends and build community.


Imagine singing to develop language and communication skills or painting to learn how to manage big feelings. Consider how being in a band can help build social and emotional skills or learning an instrument can help with focus and attention. Think about how participating in a musical theater production can help develop confidence or listening to and discussing music can help with memory and other cognitive challenges.

Through music, art, theater and movement, we help our participants build important life skills, make friends and find meaning and joy. We work with children, teens and adults with all skills, abilities and challenges including intellectual delays and disabilities, ASD, ADHD, Alzheimer's and dementia, TBI, as well as those managing difficult life transitions.

We offer a wide variety of arts-based experiences. We have recently added play therapy and parent coaching as well. I would love to discuss how we can be of service to you.  Please email me at so we can set up a time to talk.
