Artist Member Spotlight:
"Julie Schlosser, is a board certified music therapist who enjoys helping people of a wide range of ages and abilities discover how being actively involved in music can improve their lives. Thinking creatively is her passion; whether that be in the form of writing a song, developing a new music program to reach an underserved population, or using unusual materials and items to produce an unexpected musical experience. She instructs vocal, piano, guitar, and ukulele lessons, teaches early childhood music, and provides music therapy services in the greater Mansfield area. She also enjoys performing locally at Saint James Episcopal Church and with the Mansfield University Festival Chorus.
Julie is originally from Bradenville, PA on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. She attended Mansfield University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy. She completed her clinical internship at Forbes Regional Hospital and Forbes Nursing and Rehab Center in Pittsburgh, PA. After moving back to the Mansfield area, she started her own business, Arts for All in 2005. Her husband William and son Benjamin have been a great support to her as she has expanded her music services throughout the Twin Tiers Region over the past 11 years.
Living in a healthy, vibrant community is important to Julie, and so when some like-minded people met at her home to brainstorm about an “arts cooperative” several years ago, she was intrigued at the possibility of a collective of artists and patrons of the arts coming together to help one another, as well as enrich our communities. Julie is currently serving as EMAC’s steering committee president and is excited to see the growth the organization has had over the last few months." Check out Arts for All on Facebook.
