Founder and Clinical Director of North Austin Music Therapy

Tara’s time with the residents of our community is simply incredible. She enters a room, armed only with a music stand, her guitar and her voice, and the room COMES ALIVE. Anyone in our profession knows how challenging it can be to reach residents of a nursing home, in late stages of varying dementia’s, but Tara does just that, REACHES them. Seeing the response she gets puts a smile in my heart every time.”
