Our store currently offers private sessions for all interested parties. Each session is designed for the individual and is based on their needs. The Music Therapist conducts an assessment to determine areas of need and establish goals. Music Therapy sessions then focus on the set goals through use of musical based activities. Responses, both musical and non-musical, are documented after each session to keep track of progress. Goals may address communication, social skills, and academic, psychological and physical needs. There are several musical experiences that may take place such as music improvisation, learning through music, or organized playing.
"I use musical experiences such as improvisation, learning through music, or organized playing in order to focus on individual goals of my clients." Danielle Musat | Music Therapist
Flexible. Nurturing. Connecting.
Music Therapy has been proven effective as a therapeutic intervention for persons of any age or ability. The clients do not have to have any particular musical ability to benefit from Music Therapy. There is a substantial amount of research literature to support the effectiveness of Music Therapy.
