Kirby Gilliam, Owner

MT-BC, NMT

Born and raised in Anderson, IN, Kirby Gilliam decided to become a board-certified music therapist after working as a music educator in the public school system.  Kirby saw the power of music - addressing non-musical needs- of her students and believed her community needed this service.  Kirby started PlainSong as a way to serve her community through music.  Kirby works with individuals with intellectual and development disabilities, geriatrics, dementia patients, mental health patients, and more.  When Kirby is not working, she enjoys spending her free time with her husband Steven, baby girl, Eliza, and her two dogs, Dexter and Dinah.

everyone! Sarah has worked with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for the

Alli Greear, MT-BC, NMT

Alli is a board-certified music therapist- originally from Monticello, Indiana. After completing her internship with Plainsong, Alli chose to move to the Anderson area to continue her career with the Plainsong family. Alli chose to become a Music Therapist because she loves people and music- combining the two would be the ultimate dream job. Her favorite thing about Music Therapy is the ability to use music to help clients reach goals and gain more independence. Through music we can reach goals that can improve not only quality of life but, independence and self-confidence. In her spare time, Alli enjoys creating music, fishing, and reading a good book.
