Mission Statement

The mission of Music Beyond Measure (MBM) is to create unique music programs to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and individuals suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) develop healthy coping mechanisms to aid in their recovery process. Using a group-centered format, MBM programming promotes a co-creative environment that seeks to support each person during their trauma recovery.


MBM Programming
We do not replace existing therapy, but supplement current methods in order to:
1) Increase the likelihood of survivors continuing in the recovery process
2) Advance the role of music in recovery from a relaxation activity to a viable means of healthy self-expression
3) Encourage survivors to tell their stories in a way that will not only help them, but others who may have similar backgrounds
4) Create a public dialogue on these issues to inspire our communities to become more actively involved in eradicating these problems
5) Make the arts accessible to these populations in a way that has never been done before.
