Episode 25 // Karen Sanchez

In Episode 25 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with music therapist Karen Sanchez. Karen talks about pursuing multiple degrees and how they have benefited her private practice, lets us in on her strategies for managing her family of five’s busy schedule, and shares how she keeps up her musicianship (in all her spare time, ha!).

Meet Karen

She currently has 4 other music therapists on staff providing services across 6 different counties in Northern California.
