Elly Nadel Music Therapy Program

As part of our commitment to keeping patients and staff safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have cancelled our group activities including all music therapy classes. Please see our COVID-19 Supportive Care Online Resources page for helpful information and online resources for patients and caregivers to use during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions, please call (805) 879-5654.


The Elly Nadel Music Therapy Program provides music therapy services and support to cancer patients, family members and loved ones in a way that meets physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs in a one-on-one or group setting. Activities include listening to music, using instruments, improvisation, song writing, singing and more.

Saiping Lin leads this program and she received her Master of Science in Music Therapy from State University of New York at New Paltz and her Bachelor of Arts in Musicology from Community University of China in Beijing.

The Elly Nadel Music Therapy program has been made possible through the generous support of philanthropist Julie Nadel and her late husband Jack in memory of Elly Nadel. For more information about this program, please contact Saiping Lin: (805) 879-5654 or slin@ridleytreecc.org
