INDIVIDUAL MUSIC LESSONS

MUSIC THERAPY Music therapy uses music as the therapeutic stimulus to achieve non-musical treatment goals. Weekly sessions use musical strategies to provide students with an initial assist followed by the fading of musical cues to aid in transfer and generalization of skills to other environments.

ADAPTED MUSIC Adapted music lessons (piano, guitar, ukulele or voice) focus on musical goals and are often the first step to begin a lifetime of music learning. Weekly lessons provide additional support to the student in order to introduce and develop musical skills until traditional lessons can be successful.
