JB Music Therapy

JB Music Therapy (JBMT) has been operating for over 25 years as a unique social purpose business in Calgary’s healthcare and education systems. With a monthly roster of 2000 clients ranging in age from infants to a 106, JB Music Therapy is helping thousands improve their mood, mobility, memory, learning and language.

Just over two decades ago the world began to learn about, and understand, the science of how music can build the brain and restore mood. As true trailblazers, with a dedication to community service for the last 25 year, JBMT has been on the cutting edge of this research and have been sharing their professional skills with Calgarians who need it most.

JBMT’s team personalize treatments for a broad range of population groups — some of the most common include children with learning challenges including autism, youth who are struggling with anxiety and depression, adults who have sustained a head injury or stroke, and seniors with dementia.

As a team of certified music therapists (MTAs), JBMT uses music daily to transform lives, regardless of age or ability, through excellence in clinical practice and education.
