Meet JoAnn Jordan

I am a board certified music therapist. I founded Musical Gems, a contract music therapy service, to provide programs for groups and individuals looking to improve the quality of their lives using music.

With over the past 25 years as a music therapist, I have led drum circles and provided music & imagery sessions to adults in a variety of settings. My presentations include “Working with Music” in May 2010 for AHEC Northwest, Drum Circles at the “Full Circle …An Aging Expo” in September 2008 and A Musical Approach to Children” for the NW Kansas Child Care Resource & Referral Agency.

In addition to my work with Music Gems, I provide music therapy sessions for older adults and young children through Music Sparks.  To learn more about these serves visit Music Sparks.

I am a graduate of the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk) with a degree in Music Therapy. I live in Hays, KS with my husband, daughter, and dogs. For fun, I try my hand at gardening and home decorating.

  1. Hi JoAnn,
    Read your post about John Lennon and your dreams. I love “imagine”, it is such an awesome song and the lyrics speak directly to me everytime. So you inspired me, I will write a post about John Lennon within short 🙂 I am trying to turn my dreams into action (though many of them are already true), you can read about it here if you wish
