What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages. In individual and group sessions, clients will benefit from therapeutic music experiences supporting communication, cognition, sensory regulation, social development, emotional expression, and more.
Before beginning music therapy sessions, a qualified music therapist assesses each client and develops individualized goals based on the client’s areas of need. The music therapist creates a treatment plan to reach these goal areas through activities that include active music making, receptive music experiences, music creation, and more!

What Does Music Therapy Look Like?
Every music therapy session looks different because every client we support is different. Our team of board-certified music therapists create activities and therapeutic music experiences around each individual's areas of need and interests. We use music to support the development of non-musical goals to help each client reach their desired outcomes & fullest potential!
Instrument playing, singing, and engaging with music actively within the therapeutic relationship.
Music listening, perceiving music, music for relaxation, meditation and mindfulness.
Receptive Music Experiences
Songwriting, music composition, music production, music video making, and musical improvisation.
Constructive & Creative Experiences
Music Therapy is both a process and a product. Tools created in session can be used at home to support skill transfer from the therapy room to the real world.
