23 Days of Gratitude | Day 21 - You

When I purchased the domain name for Listen & Learn Music a little over 9 years ago, I never imagined this would become a place that would help me connect with hundreds of music therapists, teachers, and parents across the country.

Music Therapy Connections has had quite the journey, from being based in my car (when I traveled to my students and clients), to my home, to 3 small rooms inside a music store, to now our own 2,500 square feet of space.

When my co-owner Katey and I stepped foot into the building for the first time, we knew it was where MTC was meant to be. We poured hours upon hours and our blood, sweat and tears (well, mostly Katey, since I had a newborn at the time) into making it the perfect studio for us.
