Testimonials


I have been very pleased and impressed with Chelsie Ozga as a Music Therapist. She is a talented musician and she is dedicated to her field; she believes in the capabilities of the children she works with and genuinely shares in their successes; she is patient, very kind and is someone I completely trust around my son. I would happily refer her services to any other family interested in trying Music Therapy as an intervention.
— Mother of Child with ASD

Chelsie has been an integral part of my daughter’s therapy team. She has a true gift for connecting with children who are neurologically challenged and has brought so much fun and joy into our home. Most importantly, she has found so many ways to help my daughter learn to move, communicate and grow. She is very intuitive and inventive in her work, and has spurred enormous development for my child. I highly recommend the services of Music Plus and their employees.
— Mother of child with Aicardi Syndrome

Mark is wonderful! My son loves him and he intuitively seems to understand how to best work with him and holds him to an appropriate high standard/expectation. I can’t say enough good things about him!
— Mother of child with Apraxia

Chelsie has worked with my son for quite some time now, and I have always been impressed with the wonderful and creative music-based activities she comes up with for him each week. He thoroughly enjoys his time with her and I feel that his music therapy sessions have been very beneficial. One thing that we have noticed is that my son vocalizes a lot with Chelsie and this is a big deal since he has few words but the activities that Chelsie chooses encourage this kind of response from him and that is so exciting for us!

Music therapy with Chelsie has been a wonderful complement to my son’s speech and ABA therapies and Chelsie does a great job of incorporating goals from his other therapies into each and every session.
— Mother of child with ASD

5 Stars. Mark has a great approach to our child and makes lessons fun!

About Us

we are music plus

When we were babies, we babbled along with nursery rhymes and learned speech.  When we were toddlers, music helped us understand our world and learn our language.  When we were school-age, we sang our ABC's and learned to read.

And on we went: utilizing music to continuously propel ourselves forward in self-actualization.  Music helped us process our teenage break-ups and created a safe space from which to move forward.  Music brought us together during both times of celebration and times of loss.  Finger tips on keys, bows in hands and breath on microphones made sure we knew we were never alone.   

Through extensive research on music perception in the brain, we know the "how" and "why" of neuroplasticity and mirror neurons which lead to meaningful changes in brain stucture and chemistry.  At Music Plus, we're focusing on the "what" or the result.  Of course there will be music and movement, but what else?  What physical, cognitive, socio-emotional, behavioral result will you finally gain through music?

That's what we're going to find; the Music Plus.
