We have some big news this week at Stepping Stones KC!!
I’m so excited to announce we have added a new board-certified music therapist to our team. Welcome Austin Thorn!!
Austin Thorn is a board-certified music therapist, originally from St. Louis. Austin moved to Kansas City to pursue an undergraduate degree in music therapy from UMKC, where he graduated in 2020. Before Stepping Stones KC, Austin taught music at the Berkley Center for Children and Families, completed a music therapy internship at Children’s Mercy, and taught guitar, piano, bass, and ukulele lessons at Guitar Center. In addition to recently becoming a board-certified music therapist, Austin has also received his NICU-MT certification, demonstrating his ability to use music with infants and little ones with a history of prematurity and medical fragility. His goal is to increase accessibility to music therapy for the Kansas City community.
