Individual Music Therapy
One on one music therapy sessions are 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions with the music therapist to address specific goals and objectives. This service is tailored to the needs of the individual and extensive documentation is tracked throughout treatment. This service is appropriate for any age and population.
Adaptive Music Lessons
Adaptive lessons are for individuals who may not have success using traditional teaching methods. By using the unique skill set of a music therapist, individuals with disabilities may learn an instrument. Some teaching methods include color coding, large note music, adaptive mallets, and assistive technology. Instruments offered at this time are piano, guitar, ukulele, and violin. Instrument not included.
Music and Imagery
Music and Imagery is the integration of music and creative arts to encourage emotional expression and creativity. Facilitated by a music therapist, music and imagery promotes relaxation, mindfulness, self-actualization and emotional release. This is most commonly used for employee wellness, hospice settings, music psychotherapy and individual music therapy sessions.
All clients who are interested in individual music therapy are required to have an assessment done before services begin. An assessment includes a 30-45 minute session to assess the clients needs and music preferences. A 15 minute consultation with the music therapist is included, as well as extensive documentation. This session is essential in determining if the client is appropriate for music therapy, as well as goals and objectives tailored to the client's needs.
