Julieann Hartley is a board certified music therapist and neurologic music therapist from New Hampshire. She is the music therapy program director at the Concord Community Music School, although she is currently on medical leave, recovering from a neurological lyme infection and is undergoing treatment for a rare immune disorder. In 2018, she published a children’s music album called, “Therapeutic Songs for Kids” with 12 songs from her practice that were easy for families to learn and adapt to help children achieve their individual goals. The album ended up winning a 2019 Parents’ Choice Award and has been featured as a High Five album on Kinderling Radio. Besides for focusing on creating accessible music tools for families, “Miss Julieann” loves gardening, foraging for wild foods, hiking and rock climbing. She is currently recording her second album. You can follow her health and recording journey on instagram at @missjulieannmusic or Facebook at the Miss Julieann page.
