Music Therapy is a professional field of practice using therapeutic music interventions to improve emotional, physical and cognitive health. Music therapists are required to complete at least a 4-year degree in music therapy at an accredited university. Music therapists are vigorously trained as in other therapy fields and complete an internship with a board certification.
Music therapy is interactive. Sessions can involve live music with instruments such as piano, guitar, harp, voice, singing bowls and percussive instruments. Sessions may also involve instructing how to use therapeutically recorded music as a home practice. Playing and listening to music is a whole brain experience and therefore has much therapeutic potential for learning new behaviors, retraining the brain and soothing the nervous system.
A music therapy session is much more than just listening to music. Each session is designed to meet your needs, whether you are in need of rhythmic training to help retrain motor skills, therapeutic vocalization to help manage anxiety, sound meditation to improve emotional stability or restorative music to manage stress, we will ensure that your therapeutic goals are addressed with the appropriate music intervention.
