"Thank you very much for your participation in the NASA Headquarters Health & Safety Fair.  Your involvement helped to make the event successful.  Your music therapy presentation was very interesting, and you are such an engaging speaker.  The employees really enjoyed and appreciated the information you provided.  We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with you and look forward to partnering with you again in the future.  Thank you so much for your time and valued service."
[Tanya Johnson, Wellness Coordinator at NASA Headquarters]
"Our CATxStudio music therapist was more than fabulous - we are so so pleased to have her coming to us! She had the perfect demeanor for our students and charmed them all! The effects on my class were long-lasting.They were calm, quiet, attentive, and happy for the rest of the school day.  I almost didn't want to breathe or start a new lesson in case that changed the mood once she left!
I will definitely let the parents know that you also provide in-home services.  I am so excited about music therapy after just one session that I would like to try to find funding for next school year."
[Margie McDonnell, special educator at Sunrise Valley Elementary School]

"Irvin was a huge help to me as I transitioned out of the Washington DC Metro Area. He was willing to meet with my private clients in need of new a new music therapist. He spent a great deal of time with me reviewing their cases and finding the best way for the children to transition smoothly into services."
 [Corinne Richards, MT-BC music therapist]


"Irv was a natural leader, demonstrating the ability to empathize with his team members and the kids of Michelle's Kids, while moving the program forward with momentum. Irv's creativity, enthusiasm, accountability, and unwavering commitment to the success of Michelle's Kids was invaluable to the success of each practice & the final concert that had an audience of about 100 families and friends."
