HELPING INDIVIDUALS OF ALL ABILITIES
REACH THEIR POTENTIAL THROUGH MUSIC
At Music To Grow On, we specialize in providing Music Therapy services to children and adults with disabilities, assisting them in accessing their education in a manner that is specialized to the individual.
By using music, we bring a vehicle for learning that is highly motivating, reinforcing, and enjoyable for the individuals involved. We are continually expanding, adding new clientele and groups, and increasing the diversity in the populations we serve.
As a mobile company, we have the ability to move around the greater Sacramento area to provide services in the location of the client.
Music To Grow On was established in 2000 to provide Music Therapy for children with special needs throughout Sacramento County.
Since then, our company has expanded to five different counties, adding Yolo, Placer, El Dorado and Solano, which include the cities of Sacramento, Woodland, Davis, Elk Grove, Vacaville, Folsom, Roseville, and their surrounding areas. We also contract with 25 school districts in the greater Sacramento area.
We also partner with local groups and events, including Art on the Spectrum, Gigi’s Playhouse, Southside Park/Jonnie and Friends. If you are interested in partnering with MTGO, please get in touch.
Music To Grow On serves a wide variety of clientele, diagnoses, ages, and capacities, and adds to our services as the opportunity arises.
Music To Grow On currently employs ten Board-Certified Music Therapists. Each staff member brings a unique style and philosophy in the way they practice Music Therapy, giving us diversity and balance in our practice. Meet our team here.
With ongoing collaboration between the staff members and the members of the interdisciplinary teams with which we work, we can constantly grow and develop our knowledge and skills.
Since our team has the ability to provide Music Therapy utilizing different models, we can accommodate the needs of our clients, groups, families, and care providers with the therapist that most suits the circumstance.
MUSIC TO GROW ON – A SHORT FILM by DANIELLE KEATON
“Bessie is amazing, not only helping her clients to make amazing progress by developing and implementing creative musical interventions but also by supporting them, recognizing their strengths, and advocating for their needs. She is beloved by clients and families alike!”
“Receiving Music Therapy from Music To Grow On has been such an incredibly motivating and rewarding experience for our son. The unique techniques, exercises, and strategies Bessie uses with our son during Music Therapy sessions, has not only helped him focus better, but has enhanced his overall speech, language, and socialization skills! He loves the music and movement, hands-on activities and has so much fun while learning. It is the highlight of our week! Music Therapy has been such a blessing for our entire family!!”
“Music To Grow On has been a very welcoming addition to my son’s therapies. He learned skills through music, which helps him with memorization and new techniques for learning. He enjoys it and it keeps him engaged.”
“Music To Grow On has been amazing for my son! My child is very motivated by music and his music therapist is able to motivate him to demonstrate and practice skills that he avoids trying in other settings. He has made wonderful progress in multiple areas (fine motor-working on writing his name, gross motor-finally jumping after years of having this as a PT goal, speech, reading, and math) with the addition of music therapy.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet multiple therapists from Music To Grow On and they have all been highly skilled, warm, and engaging, very comfortable with and able to work with children of all abilities. I would definitely recommend Music To Grow On!”
