Andrea Cortez, MM, MT-BC, is a board certified music therapist and holds a masters degree in Music Therapy with an emphasis in neurologic rehabilitation through music. She is a harpist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, entrepreneur, and sound meditation teacher dedicated to creating restorative listening spaces that enhance health and wellbeing. Andrea’s diverse work is at the intersection of performance art, sound therapy, and sound meditation. Deeply inspired by nature, Andrea explores the relationship between music and the natural world. Her mission offers restorative methods to connect to nature through deep listening. Merging knowledge of Hindustani classical raag systems, indigenous Meso-American tradition, and contemporary Western classical training, her performances combine processed harp, ambient effects, and midi-plant generated sounds. Beyond raising awareness within our natural environments, Andrea seeks to cultivate our own inner wellness. Andrea is the founder of Mind Body Music Center, a sound therapy studio based in Austin, TX.
