Welcome to HarmonizED: Music Therapy!
HarmonizED is our free music therapy program. This group requires no prior musical experiences or talent; this group will utilize music as a time to grow, learn, and heal! Group participants will approach music with a fresh perspective of openness to get back to the foundations of creativity. Classes will explore music in a variety of ways, a few of which include: examining and discussing song lyrics to obtain ideas and group cohesion, practicing group songwriting as a means of self-empowerment, engaging in creative improvisation and music making to promote freedom and self-acceptance, and using music to strengthen self-esteem and grow self-love.
This group is intended for adult females and males (ages 18+).

Meet the Instructor
HarmonizED is facilitated by Kathryn Boyer, MT-BC, NMT – Board Certified Music Therapist, Neurologic Music Therapist. Kathryn (Katie) Boyer has been a board certified music therapist since 2012. She began her journey as a music therapist at an acute psychiatric hospital in Jackson, Mississippi, where she used music within a variety of therapeutic means to facilitate healing, promote group cohesion, and increase self-esteem for a population of varied ages, backgrounds, and diagnoses. Katie also developed a private music therapy practice, serving several families in the Jackson area for over two years. In March of 2015 she moved to Nashville, Tennessee for a position as an Experiential Therapist at Rogers Behavioral Health. There, using music alongside other evidence-based practices, she serves children and adults diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, eating disorders, mood disorders, and other anxiety related disorders. Katie is passionate about how powerful music can be in connecting people, opening communication, and, most of all, healing.
