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. It is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. -American Music Therapy Association
An assessment is conducted by a Board Certified Music Therapist and individualized goals and objectives are determined.
Music therapy interventions are implemented in sessions and ongoing documentation to track progress.
Goals are generalized into everyday life and clients are given tools to use when outside of the music therapy sessions.
WHAT ARE MUSIC THERAPY INTERVENTIONS?
There are four main areas of interventions in music therapy: Receptive, Re-creation, Improvisation, and Composition/Songwriting.
Within each of these categories specific music interventions may include: lyric analysis, improvisation, music listening, drumming, movement to music, songwriting, singing, instrument play, relaxation to music, and more!
We use client preferred music in sessions and our music therapists tailor interventions to meet the individualized needs and goals of the client.
