What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy is the use of music to reach non-musical goals in a fun and approachable way. Non-music goals can include skills such as academic skills, motor skills, speech/communication skills, social emotional skills, and much more.

While it may just look like a lot of fun, a board-certified music therapist is trained to use clinical & evidence-based music interventions to meet the unique and individualized goals of the individuals they treat.
