Episode 47 // Gretchen Chardos Benner

In Episode 47 of the Guitars & Granola Bars podcast, I’m chatting with Gretchen Chardos Benner. Gretchen talks about following in her sister’s footsteps to become the second music therapist in her family, pursuing her masters degree while working full-time, and how she makes music with her family at home.

Meet Gretchen

Gretchen Chardos Benner

Gretchen is married with two children (5 and almost 3). Her family motivated their relocation from PA to SC and now two of her sisters, an aunt, cousin and her parents are an hour drive or closer! Gretchen founded Piedmont Music Therapy, LLC to provide music therapy services in the Greater Charlotte Area from early childhood to older adults, and private music lessons. Their family time is most enjoyed with crafts, music, baking and frolicking outside!
