    John MorabitoMusic Program Director
    John Morabito has a deep passion for allowing our clients to experience healing through music. He has been building recording studios inside of treatment centers for teens since 2006. He built 5 studios in Los Angeles area and built two studio here at Ignite. Adolescents find solace in music. It is something that they look forward to every week.

    Whether it’s listening to music in a safe environment or singing, rapping or just jotting feelings down on paper, music touches the soul like nothing else can. John’s relationship with our clients extends far past the therapeutic musical interactions, and into the core of who they are. His work inspires our kids to not just succeed but to want to succeed. To see a better future for themselves, and actualize their dreams in the setting of a real studio.
