Melodic Connections is a community music studio serving all ages and abilities. Using the principles of Community Music Therapy and a spirit of abundance, Melodic Connections bring groups together through music to form lasting relationships that include people with disabilities as leaders, participants and employees in the tri-state.

“We use music as a tool for change in the lives of the people we serve and the communities they are a part of. Through the facilitation of music, we will help people see the humanity in each other, moving toward more inclusive communities that are change agents for the region. When people are brought together through active music making, we believe minds will be opened and new perspectives will emerge,” the organization says.
