Message from the director


Transform your life through the arts! At Music For Life, we offer everybody opportunities to build

skills, make friends and share with the broader community. We welcome children, teens and adults with all skills, abilities and challenges.

  • Learn to play an instrument, sing or write a song

  • Be in a chorus or band

  • Learn to paint, draw, collage and work with clay

  • Be in a musical theater production

  • Make a music video, TV show or movie

  • Join our arts based business

Our 15 amazing staff of music and art therapists and teachers will help you each step of the way.

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.

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.
