WHO WE ARE ::
Here at Metro Music Therapy, we consider it a high honor to walk alongside our clients and their families through some of life’s hardest seasons. We envision a day when all of our clients, from their first breaths until their last, will be given the opportunity to grow, heal, and thrive through their involvement in music therapy services.
Our mission is to provide the most current and innovative music therapy practices to assist our clients in achieving their cognitive, educational, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual goals.
We value honesty, transparency, empathy, warmth, and genuine connection with others.
Our Founder and CEO, Mallory Even, believes that quality Music Therapy services can only come from the best Music Therapists. Everyone on the Metro team is Nationally Board-Certified by the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT), and Licensed to practice Music Therapy in the State of Georgia.
To maintain our credentials, Music Therapists must participate in 100 hours of Continuing Education every 5 years; and we are proud to say that we not only partake in continuing education, but we are also an Approved Provider with the CBMT to lead Continuing Education courses for other healthcare professionals.
WHO WE SERVE ::
When we say, “from first breaths until last,” we mean it! Our team has the certifications and experience necessary to work with the following:

MORE ABOUT MUSIC THERAPY ::
The American Music Therapy Association defines Music Therapy as the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music therapy interventions can be designed to:
LET’S CONNECT ::
A huge thank you to the Certification Board for Music Therapists for helping our clients verify that we are, indeed, highly-qualified to provide clinical music therapy services! When searching for a Music Therapist, be sure that they are nationally board-certified through the one and only credentialing board, CBMT, and look for this badge!
Board-certified music therapists are able to practice music therapy with the highest level of proven, current music therapy knowledge using clinical and evidence-based music interventions. These interventions are utilized to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship addressing physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. This knowledge is enhanced by a program of required continuing education and renewal every five years.
“Music was the way in which my father experienced, interacted with, and related to the world around him. It was common practice for him to ask us to sit down and listen to a song with him; his timing was always terrible, actually, so if we ignored his request, which we often did, he’d just turn the song on so loudly that you had no choice but to hear it throughout the house.
One of the many, many things he taught me, and that I will always carry with me, is that if someone asks you to listen to a song because it’s meaningful to them, be the one who will.”
And this is our promise to you: we will listen to you, with you, and for you.
My name is Merideth and I’ve recently moved from the country roads of West Virginia to the sunny, peach state of Georgia to begin my six-month music therapy internship with Metro Music Therapy. Woohoo! If you told me a year (or even 6 months ago) that I’d be interning in the midst of a global pandemic, I wouldn’t have believed you. But, here I am!
As we all know, it’s been a challenge navigating the world of technology to still successfully “see” clients but through a new lens…or in this case, a screen. Thus far, the faces I’ve had the pleasure of meeting virtually are warm and welcoming. I’m sad I’m unable to see their smiles, give them hugs, and watch them make beautiful music in person. Hopefully, one day!
This experience has already differed from my school experience in the sense that I have multiple clients per day with different diagnoses compared to one client per week. While this is a bit of a challenge at the moment, I’ve already gained more knowledge than imagined just in the two short weeks of observation. I really am excited to continue growing personally and professionally. Metro Music Therapy has given me an amazing opportunity to learn from truly some of the best clinicians as well as amazing clients. I am blessed and ready to continue this journey! Stay tuned for updates. 🙂
To our Dear Clients,
It has been 6 months since we have seen each of you in-person, and boy do we feel that! We miss you all tremendously, and cannot wait until we can be together in the same room for music therapy and music lessons.
This is my reason for writing to you today: we feel the tension of both wanting to open back up and resume as much normalcy as possible, while we also know that we do not know enough just yet to do this in a safe manner.
While to you and your family it may only be 30-45 minutes with one of our staff members once a week, which sounds like low exposure, our team collectively works with over 60 families and facilities, which impacts all of our chances of potential exposure dramatically. Simply stated: in order to continue keeping your families safe, we are not ready to resume in-person services just yet.
We are closely following the CDC and WHO guidelines, and we are also keeping a pulse on the happenings around the State of Georgia. Once we feel that we can safely re-open our Studio space and return to visiting our client’s homes and facilities, I promise that you will be the first to know!
In the meantime, we have been thrilled to continue music therapy services via teletherapy and we are so grateful that we have this option. If you have opted not to participate in teletherapy up to this point, but would like to go ahead and get started, please reach out!
Thank you for your patience over the last two months as we have navigated this journey together. We are grateful for each of you!
Mallory Even, LPMT, MT-BC
