providing music therapy for over 600 in the community each week

– At Higher Octave Healing we utilize A LOT of visual aids and visual media.  These items are well loved by our clients, and often need to be replaced or redesigned.  A Visual Aid Assistant has great attention to detail, works well independently, and has wonderful art/design skills.  This volunteer helps to recreate or originate visual aids that go with music therapy interventions and songs. 

Are you interested in helping raise money for HOH through small events such as a wine tasting or fundraising dinner in your home?  This is a great way to socialize with friends while raising money for a good cause.  Use the form below to sign up!

Like us, you recognize the value of music therapy in the lives of those we all care about.  If you have the time and desire to give back, please contact Sara at!

As with most types of therapy sessions, the focus is on the client and the work of the therapist with that client. Our therapists are all nationally Board-Certified and have received years of training in order to support their clients.  We typically do not allow volunteers to work with clients because of the level of service required.  As a training organization, we do allow music therapy students or music therapy interns enrolled in a university music therapy program to assist our therapists with sessions, when appropriate.  If you are a student or intern enrolled in a university music therapy program and would like to assist in therapy sessions, please contact our office.  If you want to know more about volunteering opportunities, contact Sara at

Get Involved

Every year we want to honor a volunteer for their outstanding service to the program.  This year, we created the award to honor a volunteer of over three years, Jesse Rathgeber, for his incredible dedication to our rock band program.  Jesse gave of his time and energy every week and is publishing a chapter in a book on his work with the weekly rock band group "The Billie Jeans".  We are grateful for his volunteerism and look forward to welcoming other volunteers to assist with our organization.
