Meet Our Founder
Welcome to The Groovy Garfoose! I’m Bonnie and I’m passionate about our community, young, old and everything in between. Having grown up in Northeast Ohio, I founded The Groovy Garfoose in 2009 with the intention of making music accessible to everyone, no matter their age or ability. Ten years later, I’m thrilled to have a team of dynamic, board-certified music therapists and interns that provide music therapy services across 8 counties! At the GG, we believe in the power of music therapy to promote growth and wellness by taking a person-centered and collaborative approach to treatment. Learn more about all we have to offer on our Service Page and our Blog.
What’s a Garfoose?
The Garfoose isn’t just a musical, whimsical, purple and yellow half giraffe half moose, he’s a constant reminder of why we do what we do. The Garfoose represents our belief that disabilities don’t diminish us but rather make us stronger and more enriched as a community.
Our mascot, the Garfoose is our way of showing that special needs do, in fact, mean special – as in unique, empowered, and one-of-a-kind, like, say a giant purple and yellow half giraffe half moose who loves music
The Garfoose is our way of showing that those things that make us different should be celebrated in a big, loud, and proud way.
