Erin Bullard, MT-BC
Erin is a board-certified music therapist living in Cincinnati, OH. Music has always been a part of her life. She grew up singing in choirs, playing piano, and improvising silly songs for her sisters during long car rides. She received her bachelor’s degree in music therapy from Eastern Michigan University in 2003. After several years exploring a number of different populations, she found working with a variety of clients to be both challenging and refreshing. She started a small private practice on the East Coast shortly after completing her master’s degree in music therapy from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA in 2009. Her favorite part of being a music therapist is having an unswervingly loyal and honest co-therapist (the music) that connects to so many people in many situations on many levels.
After moving to Cincinnati, she traded clinical work for the chance to stay home with her three young children. In 2012 she started running family-based music groups and added group music classes for young children in 2013. Erin also loves research and writing in music therapy and continues to learn as much as possible about current practices in music therapy. Since shifting her focus to child development, and understanding how music supports and influences that process, she is constantly reminded by her own children of how powerful music is for establishing strong relationships.
