What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is the prescribed use of music and therapeutic music techniques, by a qualified music therapist, to assist or motivate a person toward specific non-musical goals such as communication and physical coordination skills. Music therapists use their training as musicians, clinicians and researchers to effect positive change in cognitive, social, physiological and psychological skills.

Children, adolescents, adults and the elderly with mental health needs, developmental and learning disabilities such as autism and ADD (and ADHD), Alzheimer's disease and other aging related conditions, substances abuse problems, brain injuries, physical disabilities, and acute and chronic pain, including mothers in labor.
How much does Music Therapy cost?
Price for sessions is $75 monthly (Members save $5). An initial evaluation by one of our certified music therapists will be required prior to the beginning of the first session to assess the needs of the individual and to tailor the therapy accordingly.
