I'm here to guide you from feeling overwhelmed to relieved...
Hi, I'm Noel Anderson. I help overwhelmed parents go from feeling guilt to feeling relieved and empowered (mom-guilt be gone!).
I've certainly lived that myself!
I'm the founder of Anderson Music Therapy, and a board-certified music therapist . But much of my life is dedicated to my husband, twins boys, and our kitty cat, Schrodinger ("Ding" for short).
As a mom of twins, I know parenting can be hard! And I know what a struggle it is to find meaningful moments with your child each day. I'm here to guide you through this journey of "momhood", by empowering you to use music with your kids for connection and growth.
I've been a board certified music therapist for over a decade (wooo time flies), and I can't wait to share all the benefits music can bring to your family!
Through my online course, Growing Through Music, plus free resources on my Facebook (come join us)—I'm helping relieve busy moms' burdens by creating closer family relationships and "stronger brains".
I'm here to support you in feeling less burdened; emotionally, physically, and financially!
Connect with your child while nurturing their brain development through music (even in the midst of the "daily grind".)
Growing Through Music Founder
Board Certified Music Therapist
Music is my life!
I began singing do-wop songs and songwriting before I could read or write legibly. At the age of ten I began singing publicly, and haven’t stopped since. While my main instrument is voice, I also play guitar, piano, and flute.
I have been a music therapist for over a decade. Before founding my private practice, Anderson Music Therapy in Roanoke, VA, I established and developed a school-based music therapy program for children through adults with multiple disabilities.
During this time I loved working closely alongside speech, occupational, and physical therapists as well as teachers and paraprofessionals (I miss them a TON).
I love learning! I received a bachelor's degree in music therapy from Immaculata University after completing her clinical internship at Kardon Institute for Arts Therapy in Philadelphia. I earned a Master of Music Therapy degree at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I continued my education by obtaining certification in Neurologic Music Therapy at Colorado State University. Along with my music therapy certification I hold a certification for music education.
Fun Fact about me: My passion for music therapy has been shared globally, as I've used music therapy in both Africa and India.
