About Jody Tucker, MA, MT-BC, NMT

JodyTucker, MA, MT-BC

Hi! I’m Jody Tucker. I am a mother, wife, and music therapist. Being creative through music and sewing is my thing. Let me share what I am all about. I believe learning is important. If we don’t learn, we are not aware, and we won’t grow. I believe renewing our skills is important to have a well-balanced life. I believe that music therapy works at both the scientific and spiritual levels.

That is why Access Music Therapy’s Mission is:

I wholeheartedly believe that every person can discover, express and transcend to his/her highest potential through music therapy.

That is what it’s all about.

Why the Name, “Access Music Therapy?”

I have a passion for helping people. Therefore, I want to assist others in gaining access to music therapy services in the Northern MN and WI areas. That is why I named my business Access Music Therapy, llc. Choosing that name was not difficult because of the obvious use of the word “access.” “Access” is referring to the accessibility to the services that I offer. It signifies a door opening to the many benefits of music therapy, and the funding resources that I have implemented to make it as easy as possible for services to be attainable. The music note within my logo is the “key” to the keyhole that opens the door.

Experience the creative possibilities!

From this site, I hope you are able to draw amazing insight about what music therapy is and is not. In music therapy, we explore music creatively, at each person’s level of ability and we achieve goals! I wholeheartedly believe that every person can creatively discover, express, and transcend to their highest potential.

Jody running Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon

I was 23 years old when I started my family, and divorced in 2009. In 2012, I re-married. Between Joe and I, we have 4 girls. I have two beautiful daughters, Emily who is 22 years old, and Lizzi who is 19. They are my pride and joy! I am also the step-mom of two cutie smart step-daughters, Gwyn (13) and Rhiannyn (10). Besides my family and work, I am deeply proud that I have completed seven half marathons so far. My husband and I run together now, and we have so much fun!
