The Center for Music Therapy was founded in 1990 to make music therapy more accessible to the Central Texas area. Services are based on the founding principle of gratitude. Founder and President, Hope E. Young, MT-BC has been in practice in Austin since 1990, working with children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Austin's NSIDE magazine featured the center in their July 2010 issue. Click here to read the article. Additionally, YouTube's Psychetruth channel created a series of videos on music therapy and the center. Click here to see the series of videos.

Proud to be a locally owned Austin original business, the Center is also the first and oldest for profit music therapy facility in the world.  Its newest site at 711 West 38th Street is the most technologically advanced facility in the world specifically designed to treat neurologic movement conditions and disorders through music.  In its long history, the Center for Music Therapy has provided services for many area hospitals including St. David's Hospital and Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital as well as facilities in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Corpus Christi.  All of our music therapists are certified by the Certification Board for Music Therapists and our physical therapist by the State of Texas.  The Center for Music Therapy is a licensed physical therapy facility by the State of Texas.

"I regard music therapy as a tool of great power...because of its unique capacity to organize or reorganize cerebral function when it has been damaged."
