About

Music Therapy

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. In music therapy sessions, music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals.

Music stimulates all of the senses and involves the client at many levels, facilitating multiple developmental skills, encouraging socialization, self-expression, communication, and motor development. Our board-certified music therapists use music-based interventions in a clinical setting to help clients achieve individualized goals.

Music therapy is for people of all ages with various strengths and needs. The list includes:

  • People who need support with language, motor, social, or other skill development
  • Children, teenagers, and adults with mental health needs
  • Adults who have experienced stroke or traumatic brain injury
  • Adults with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia
