I'm a board-certified music therapist with experience teaching children and adults how to play the guitar in 1:1 and group settings. I'm especially passionate about working with students with disabilities (such as autism, Down Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, or cerebral palsy), and have experience adapting music and instruments if necessary. I believe in making music education accessible for all students who wish to learn.

About Kirstie G.

I'm a board-certified music therapist with experience teaching children and adults in 1:1 and group settings. I'm especially passionate about working with students with disabilities, and making adaptations as necessary in order to help them succeed. I have taught piano, guitar, bass, drums, and recorder in addition to conducting choir, handchimes, and mixed-instrument ensembles. I also facilitate music therapy sessions and teach broader classes such as music appreciation, songwriting & composition, music & relaxation, music & movement, creative writing, and knitting. I believe in making music education accessible for all students who wish to learn.
