Melinda Burgard, NYS Creative Arts Therapist/Music Therapist has been offering Music Programs live for the past 30 years, but when Covid-19 hit, she immediately switched to virtual. “I didn’t think it would work, but we had no choice” said Ms. Burgard.  But it DID work !  And for over a year now, She has been collaborating with not for profit, Action Toward Independence, in offer FREE monthly virtual groups to People Living with Dementia with their CarePartners; A FREE  Music Support Group for CarePartners (alone); and a FREE Early Childhood Therapeutic Music Program for ages infant to 5 years with Caregivers.  In this time of isolation, everyone need support- and I am pleased to fulfill this need to anyone – anywhere. If you or anyone you know might be interested, kindly email Melinda at: and she will let you know how to register.

During this time of trauma- for all- Music is there to help with the processing and the healing.  And I am happy to facilitate this.
