Why Music Therapy?

Music Therapists are uniquely positioned to help individuals of all ages achieve functional goals, as music provides a motivating, non-threatening environment in which to learn and grow.

It is not uncommon for children who were previously nonverbal to sing their first intentional sounds or words within the context of music and songs.  Children often demonstrate longer periods of attention in a musical environment, social engagement increases, and enjoyment is obvious.

Adults respond similarly to music, as music processing is a whole-brain activity, engaging the systems that process speech, cognition, movement, and emotions.
