Music Programs available all year
Music therapy uses music as the therapeutic stimulus to achieve non-musical treatment goals, for example:
Improved cognitive functioning
Increased socialization and improved behavior
Successful and safe self expression
Enhanced auditory processing
Improved communication or verbal skills
The purpose of music therapy is to provide the individual with an initial assist using melodic and rhythmic strategies, followed by fading of musical cues to aid in generalization and transfer to other environments. Click here for a video of this program.
Adapted Music Lessons
Adaptive music lessons focus on musical goals. Beginning adaptive music lessons with a music therapist can often be the first step a student needs to successfully start a lifetime of musical learning. The purpose of adaptive music lessons is to provide additional support to increase musical skills until traditional music lessons can be successful. We offer adapted music lessons in piano, voice, guitar and ukulele. Click here for a video of this program.
