Laura Tam | Music Therapy Connections | Springfield, Illinois

My name is Laura, and I am the new music therapist at Music Therapy Connections! A lot of my own personal journey to the profession of music therapy got its start from Music Therapy Connections, and I am beyond excited to be working with such a great team, as well as getting to share my experiences with you!

To start out, I would love to share a little bit about myself:

  • Music was a big part of my childhood. My three siblings and I grew up taking piano lessons together, and we also all chose to play brass instruments as we got older.
  • I love my job! Music therapy challenges me to not only be a skilled musician, but to make meaningful therapeutic connections with individuals of all needs. It is such a privilege to be a part of each client’s individual journey!
  • I wouldn’t be here without my teachers. As a recent Master’s graduate, I have had many amazing teachers impact my life. From my beginning piano and French horn teachers to my college professors, each have helped me overcome challenges and have given me the courage to aim high.

Thanks for getting to know me, and in the spirit of my last point, I highly encourage you to thank someone in your life that has impacted you and has made you who you are today!

All the best,
