Hey there music therapist!

Does any of this sound familiar?

“I don’t have enough time to constantly create new material for all my sessions! I don’t have enough time to write original songs!”


“I feel like I’m doing the same songs over and over every week!”

“I think what I am doing is effective but I’m not sure. I need to be sure my techniques are evidence based.”

“I really need to expand my repertoire. I’m always searching and searching for new ideas.”

“I could use some feedback and guidance so I know I am on the right track with my interventions.”

“I don’t know how to make visuals! I don’t have time to make visuals! Especially without worrying about copyright infringement.”

Boy have I been there!

But what if it didn’t have to be that way?

What if....

You had instant access to a library of songs and interventions?

What if....

You could break out of the rut and get inspired!?

What if....

Your clients experienced faster and more noticeable outcomes as a result of music therapy!?

What if....

You had support and guidance through sticky situations and unfamiliar territory?

Hi, I'm Mary

Since 2007, I’ve been working with children who have special needs. This is my passion. I have worked extensively in the special education school setting and also built a thriving music therapy center, Sound Starts Music, from the ground up.


 Watching kids experience music and and make progress with music therapy is one of my greatest joys!


I know how time consuming it is to create all your own materials. I also know how hard it can be to find songs that work for music therapy that do not require a ton of adaptation. I have spent many hours searching online but never finding quite what I was looking for. At times I’ve even wondered if I was on the right track with my approach and I wished for support from other music therapists!


That’s why I created the Music Therapy Kids Club: to provide resources and support and ultimately, better outcomes for our clients!


I’ve done the work so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel!


Is Music Therapy Kids Club right for me?


Do you work with kids?



Do you want to earn CMTEs that specifically relate to your work?



Are you looking to expand your repertoire of music therapy interventions?



Do you need songs that work NOW!?



Do you need to get UNSTUCK and out of the rut of using the same old songs?



Are you are looking for feedback about specific situations and techniques?



Do you want to spend less time planning and more time with clients?


What Music Therapists Are Saying:

Don’t just take it from me, let other music therapists do the talking!

Mary has impressed me from the moment I met her. She has inspired me to improve in my own practice, and as we’ve collaborated on projects, I’ve watched her encourage and inspire others. Mary has a knack for making people feel competent and prepared. Count on Mary for fresh ideas, well-organized and delivered with a hearty, “you got this!”

Music Therapist, Soundscaping Source

I love the songs and activities Mary puts together! Her ideas and interventions have greatly assisted the clients I serve. The melodies are not just kid friendly but user friendly too! I can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next!

Music Therapist

I can’t believe that I first met Mary Altom when I supervised her in internship. What’s EASY to believe is what an incredibly resourceful, invaluable, genius asset she is to our field. When I think of leaders in the field of music therapy, Mary’s name is at the top of the list. Mary not only runs a thriving private practice, serving various clinical populations in her area… She is also the founder of Music Therapy Kids, a rich resource for anyone who wants to boost their repertoire and get trained to do what SHE does! Mary is a mover and a shaker, and you *want* to be in her world. Trust me. She has a warm, welcoming energy about her, and I highly recommend her Kids Club. Don’t miss out. Do your clients a favor and join the Kids Club!

Frequently Asked Questions

What's in the Resource Library?

All. the. amazing. things! Seriously. All of Mary’s original songs and lead sheets. Session Plans. Visuals. And MORE. You have to see it to believe it.

I have a specific topic I'd like to talk about. Are you available to help?

Yes! Every month, you may schedule a 15 minute laser coaching call with me. You’ll receive a link to my available slots and after you sign up, we can chat via phone or video call at the designated time for a quick, focused discussion about your specific situation! You’ll also have access to our private facebook group where you can ask a question anytime. There you’ll not only get my support but also that of other members!

Are the trainings live? What if I can't attend during the scheduled time?

No problem! While not all the trainings will be live, those that are will be recorded and later added to the website so you can watch or re-watch them on your terms.

How do I earn CMTEs?

Every webinar or training will be a minimum of 50 minutes (the length of 1 CMTE). A link to a form will be provided along with the video. Once you fill it out, you’ll get a PDF with all the necessary information. Bundle 3 or more 50 minute segments together for an umbrella grouping (check CBMT re-certification manual for details). Music Therapy Kids is currently a non-preapproved provider.

How many CMTEs can I earn?

That’s really up to you! Yearly members can expect at least 6 new training modules to be added over the coming year. All members will have access to the training library! As long as you are a member, you’ll be able to get new trainings and keep earning CMTEs.
