Kind Words

“Tara has successfully distilled over a decade’s worth of experience using music with those with dementia and their caregivers into a thorough but easy to follow course. Her approachable style and clinical expertise make her universally loved by her clients, in addition to being recognized for her work within the field of music therapy. She truly is an expert on the use of music therapy with those living with dementia and this course is perfect for beginners and seasoned professionals.”

Meredith Hamons, MT-BC
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.”
