Music therapy is the intentional and focused use of music and music activities to facilitate change and improve quality in non-musical aspects of life.
Music is therapeutically used to address and reach goals affecting physical, emotional, cognitive thought patterns and social interaction of the whole person.
Music Therapy is a strength-based approach to well being.
Music therapy sessions and interventions are designed to address needs and/or enhance quality of life and wellness.
Individual sessions begin with a consultation, followed by a series of strategic outcome oriented and strength based interventions to achieve desired results.
Group sessions can range from sing-a-longs to group drumming, to improvisational ensembles.
Community well based music activities and team building events are offered.
Hospitals, residential and senior facilities served. Veterans and ‘at risk’ youth drumming, music-making sessions and programs are available.
Music therapy applied by a certified practitioner is utilized widely as cognitive, psychosocial, and/or medical therapy.
It is and can be prescribed by a physician for a variety of illnesses from speech disorders to Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson's disease.
Music therapy can provide non-invasive treatment and relief for pain and stress.
Music and music activities can enhance wellness in the community, increase social interaction and bring family and people together.
