Gabrielle "Gabby" Banzon, MA, LPMT, MT-BC is a Filipino-American music therapist currently residing in Atlanta, GA and working with adults with IDD and TBI in a residential community. She received her Bachelors in Music Therapy with a minor in Music Technology from Georgia College & State University and her Masters of Arts in Music Therapy from Texas Woman's University. Her clinical interests include songwriting, music production, community approaches, social justice and theories. Gabby is the author of "Space: A Journal for (Future) Music Therapists to Explore and Express through Songwriting," a book to help professionals and students develop therapeutic songwriting skills. She coordinates social media for the Asian Music Therapy Network - U.S., co-hosts the Clinical BOPulations podcast, manages the Tech Nook, and serves on the AMTA International Relations Committee.
When time permits, Gabby continues to play, create, and collaborate outside of the clinic. Even though this band geek fulfilled her ensemble requirements long ago, she still can't seem to get enough of making music with people. Available for lyrics, keys, guitar, vocals, and beats, she'll bring whatever dynamic you need to your sound and space. She is also a NOVUM Records artist and contributes to a variety of its projects through writing, arranging, and recording.
Beyond music, Gabby also enjoys creating fun(ny) content. From graphics to videos to140 characters, you can find her on most social media platforms as @gabtothezilla .
