Welcome to The Groovy Garfoose! I’m Bonnie and I’m passionate about providing inclusive and accessible music therapy services in Northeast Ohio. Hailing from Mentor, Ohio, I founded The Groovy Garfoose in 2009 with the intention of making music accessible to everyone. Fast forward a few years, and I’m thrilled to have a team of dynamic, board-certified music therapists and interns that provide services across Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Summit and Portage Counties.

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 every person should be celebrated and that our differences make us stronger and more enriched as a community.

Our mascot, the Garfoose, is a reminder that each of is unique, like, say a giant purple and yellow half giraffe half moose who loves music.
