Music Therapy is an evidence-based healthcare service that involves using music as the primary tool in therapy.
Music Therapists obtain a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy and complete a minimum of 1,200 clinical hours supervised by a Board-Certified Music Therapist.
Music Therapists are trained in psychology, anatomy, physiology, neuroanatomy, music theory, music performance, multi-instrumental proficiency (strings, percussion, woodwind, and more), and behavioral research and design.
Music Therapists work with individuals and groups of ALL AGES, in many settings, including outpatient clinics, schools, hospitals, and more. We work with individuals and groups with various diagnoses and areas of need including (but not limited to) those on the Autism Spectrum, individuals with Parkinson’s disease, post-stroke rehabilitation, individuals with mental health diagnoses (anxiety, depression, PTS), individuals with Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, dementia, and end of life care.
Music Therapists develop treatment plans to target goal areas in speech, language, communication, social skills, motor function, sensory processing, mental health, and other healthcare goals.
You do not need to have a musical background or any musical skills to receive music therapy!
The client participates in live music-making exercises created to reach specific non-musical goals. A wide variety of musical instruments are implemented in the session, with multiple adaptations to ensure the client is completing a musical task that would benefit his/her success in nonmusical goals.
We provide 1:1 sessions as well as group sessions at our clients’ homes as well as various locations.
We are always happy to begin new programs at new locations. Contact us to schedule a free demonstration for a group at your facility, or for a free consultation for individual sessions.
Our fees depend on location, and type of session (group vs. individual). Please contact us for more information.
