My name is JoAnn Jordan. I am so blessed to have found the field of music therapy where I can can combine my love of music with my passion for assisting people in having a quality life. I received my education at the University of Kansas and am a board certified music therapist. With more than 30 years in the field working with older adults and preschoolers (and the two groups together), creating Music Sparks has been a joy.
As far back as I can remember, I have loved to sing. Music has connected me with some amazing folks over the years. But, there’s more to me than music. People, especially elders and young children are the focus of my life and my work. Music therapy allows me to connect these two passions.
A love of learning has lead me to diverse interests including, gardening, baking rustic breads, practice yoga, and home decorating.
I believe life should be filled with fun, joy, learning, and great experiences. And, music is how I add these elements to my life and the lives of those with whom I work.
It is my hope that those who work or live with older adults, children, or both will find ideas that will make your life easier while improving the quality of life for others. My newsletters are FREE and provide even more details on a given theme you can use with little or no preparation.
