We use music as a tool for change in the lives of the people we serve and the communities they are a part of. Through the facilitation of music, we  help people see the humanity in each other, moving toward more inclusive communities that are change agents for the city. When people are brought together through active music making, we believe minds will be opened and new perspectives will emerge.
Melodic Connections has the most comprehensive approach to Trauma-informed Music Therapy in the greater Cincinnati region. Using the principles of Trauma-informed Care and Community Music Therapy, we use the art and science of music to strengthen the bonds between people, leading to stronger relationships and more resilient communities.

We make music in a variety of ways, with a solid foundation of music therapy at our core. We bring music therapy to your organization and work with people you serve.

We believe in the power of music to connect and bring people together. Schools, parks, businesses, community centers — wherever people gather, we make it more intentional by adding music.

See what we’re doing right now and how you can engage with us. We invite you to be a music maker and a change agent. Join us in our journey.
