In Episode 14 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist Brittany Scheer. Brittany discusses her decision to leave her job as a hospice music therapist to open a private practice, the pros of doing so in a small town, and shares why she is the happiest she’s ever been in her life.
Brittany is a music therapist and mother of 2 little ones, ages 2 and 8 months. She lives and works in a small community in West-Central Ohio, surrounded by rural farms and other very small communities. Brittany became certified as a music therapist in 2008 and has since obtained her Master’s degree.
She started a private practice called Living Music, LLC, right before she found out she was pregnant with her second child. Brittany’s practice focuses on medical and mental health settings, and she is very excited about the possibilities of music therapy in her small town.
