Music therapy movement swells
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve declared Friday, July 29, 2022 as “Music Therapy Day”.
This is in honor of a local non-profit called Note-Able Music Therapy Services.
It addresses physical, social, and mental health needs in northern Nevada by offering a range of adaptive music, music therapy, and neurologic music therapy services.
Mayor Schieve is encouraging the Community to support access to music therapy.
This comes just four weeks after Note-Able Music Therapy Services purchased a new location.
It outgrew its old space where it could help about 2,000 people a year.
Its new 17,000 square foot location in north Reno between Winco and Goodwill will have the capacity to help up to 5,000 people a year.
“We have extensive renovations we are going to be doing to this building to really create a state of the art center that our community needs and deserves. We need all the help we can get from the Community,” said Note-Able Music Therapy Services Founder and Executive Director, Manal Toppozada.
About $1.5 million was raised to pay for the building.
The goal is to raise another $2 million to renovate the inside and outside of the building.
