Based in Las Vegas, NV Bailey Hinz is a music therapist nationally recognized by the Certification Board of Music Therapists and licensed through the Nevada Board of Health. Hailing from Wisconsin, music has long been an important part of Bailey's life; she started playing piano at age seven, picked up the French horn four years later and continued her instrumental exploration with guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele (she also plays a mean kazoo). While she has studied several instruments, her area of musical expertise is in classical voice; she received an undergraduate degree in music performance from North Central Collegeand has performed both domestically and abroad. However, after several summers spent directing youth summer music camps, Bailey realized that her true passion rested in working with others and helping them to achieve their goals; she decided to fulfill this mission through music therapy, earning a master's degree from Colorado State University. Bailey has worked with individuals among a wide range of ages and areas of need but has a particular enthusiasm for therapy with individuals diagnosed with a developmental disability. When not musically involved, Bailey stays active with all things swim bike-run, competing as a professional triathlete; an activity which she credits for both her determination and sanity. She spends long hours on the roads and trails coming up with songs and contemplating creative ways to approach sessions. Bailey's unique musical and athletic background brings a fresh and energetic approach to the therapeutic setting.
Each individual and his or her need is unique and should be treated as such. Instead of a "cookie cutter" practice, I create music therapy sessions and treatment plans specifically for each client. In doing so, I answer three specific questions: 1. What is the non-musical goal as it applies outside of the therapeutic setting? 2. What is the specific behavior and what does practice of this behavior look like? 3. How can music be used to better address this goal? The overreaching goal is for progress within music therapy to translate outside of the musical setting and to become applicable to the individual's life.
