What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is a broad, scientifically proven practice that uses music to address people's social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs. It’s led by certified music therapists who employ musical elements such as rhythm, melody, and harmony to help patients achieve their therapeutic goals. We offer sessions for:
Toddlers, primary school, teens, adults, and seniors.
Care partnerships in long-term care, schools, hospices, and more.
Individual or group sessions through Zoom.
