Music Therapy is a motivating and effective intervention for many people! Whether your child has a diagnosis, illness, special need, or is struggling in another area, music provides a medium to promote learning. Music Therapy offers an evidence-based way to address a child's needs, including physical, communication, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, academic, and social goals!
We offer guitar, ukulele, voice, and piano lessons. Our teaching style offers children an opportunity to learn a new skill, while also building skills in other areas. Learning to play an instrument helps children to grow in areas of focus, following directions, communication, fine motor skills, self-confidence, and more. We promote a play-based learning style that keep children motivated because lessons are fun!
Our music enrichment groups are a great addition to any school, kids facility, or therapy clinic. Music is an important part of all childhood learning programs. Our music enrichment groups offer a fun, social, and interactive opportunity to build skills. In these sessions, individualized to the participants, children will have the chance to sing, dance, and play instruments while addressing key areas in their development!
If our current programming doesn't fit your needs, we can create a custom music group just for you. Our groups come in many shapes & sizes! Set up music for your homeschool pod, a neighborhood group, a small therapy group, a playdate with family & friends, a pop-up at your small business, and more. Each group is designed and adapted to meet the unique needs of the participants. Available for all ages.
Our Board-Certified Music Therapists are educated and highly-skilled at assessing, designing, and implementing services within a wide variety of populations. We are available to give presentations and workshops to schools, hospitals, parent groups, and more to educate and clarify on the many ways music can support learning.
