Hello, I’m Mark Burnett, a board-certified music therapist, owner of MB Music Therapy and the lead music therapist for the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital UMMCH. Completing training by the state of Minnesota on reimbursement and waivers available through state and federal programs, was very challenging and time-consuming. With that in mind, if the mission is to get music therapy to the people, we all need to collaborate, advocate, practice, and learn.

For over 28 years I have been in practice serving the following populations: adolescent and adult chemical addiction, behavioral health, child development, cognitive and developmentally unique, education (autism, developmental disability, adaptive), forensics, geriatrics, hospice (pediatric and adult), integrative health, medical, neuroscience, and rehabilitation. That is a long list of experience, and learning and development never end.

With this experience, I hope to participate in sharing, being informed, and streamlining access to music therapy. With this, a hope for dialogue, and an invitation toward the happiness of others.
