Music therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, sensory, cognitive, academic, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and areas for growth of each client, a board-certified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, playing, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music to reach therapeutic goals. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients’ abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives.
Your donation funds scholarships which provide music therapy sessions for individuals and community organizations in the Ozarks. Music therapy serves individuals throughout the lifespan and is inclusive to all abilities and diagnoses. MTO has provided scholarship funding in our community for children and adults with developmental disabilities, autism, Down syndrome, residents at assisted-living and memory-care facilities, hospice patients, Isabel’s House, Boyd Elementary, Cox Health’s NICU, and Victory Mission.

THANK YOU for your donation!
What an exciting day yesterday was! Overall, Give Ozarks raised $710,577 and our final total was $2,327. We still have a ways to go in making up the difference lost due to the cancellation of one out of two of our main fundraisers.
We can not express in words how much we appreciate you, your donation and your support.
95% of all donations go directly to funding music therapy scholarships programs and we truly mean it when we say "We couldn't do this without YOU!"
Please enjoy our "Thank you for the Music" video. These are just some of the faces that your donations support. https://youtu.be/gxU0L0CKXLI
