C.L.E.A.R Music Therapy

Using music to Communicate, Learn, Empower, Adapt and Realize our full potential.

What is Music Therapy?

The Canadian Association for Music Therapy - (CAMT) defines music therapy as the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development


Julie Lowry graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2006 with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Vocal Performance. Looking to unite her love for music and working with people, she embarked on another educational journey at Capilano University in North Vancouver, BC earning her degree in the Bachelor of Music Therapy program. Julie moved back to her home roots in Calgary, Alberta and established CLEAR Music Therapy. Julie became a music therapist accredited (MTA) in January 2012!

What is the significance behind the company name CLEAR Music Therapy?

In creating her therapeutic approach, Julie recognized five qualities that guided her practice: communicating, learning, empowering, adapting, and realizing full potential. These five principles provided clarity and CLEAR Music Therapy was born.

Our Services
Adapted Music Lessons
Adapted music lessons provide an opportunity for persons with disabilities to experience learning a new instrument in an environment that is sensitive to their needs. Options such as playing by colour, improvising, and using visuals are just a few ways to encourage individuals to partake in learning an instrument.
Mommy & Me
Mommy and Me music classes are created to introduce your baby to music, facilitate success-based interaction, and have been designed with specific goals to encourage your baby to explore their current developmental stage. Contact us for more details on scheduled dates, times and locations.
Group Sessions
Group music therapy sessions can offer individuals to come together and work with a music therapist. By working together, a group session can effectively focus on social and communication goals and objectives. Group sessions are a great opportunity for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults to use music to its full advantage.
Individual Sessions
Individual music therapy sessions focus on developing specific goals and objectives in an individualized environment. A one to one session provides a concentrated time to work on goals and objectives that may include, but are not limited to, areas such as social, emotional, physical, and communication domains.
"My son is seven years old and has Autism. Julie has been an excellent addition to our team of therapists. She works well with all of them and is able to apply music therapy to any area that the team is focusing on. In the past months, she has successfully worked with my son to develop his ability to use language, communicate and regulate his moods. This has all been done in a fun environment where he doesn’t even realize he is learning. My son always looks forward to his music time and can’t wait to get to Julie’s studio. They have created the most wonderful songs and music together."

"My son looks forward to his session with Julie every week! Julie's warm and caring personality made him feel comfortable right from the start. The sessions have been a great way for him to express his ideas. He loves creating his own songs and recording them to share with us at home"
