What is Music Therapy? Music Therapy interventions focus on the development of the whole child. This encompasses social/emotional, cognitive and physical development on all levels. The sessions are based upon observations, responses, and the alignment of developmental milestones with musical milestones for each age. Music therapy offers assessment of needs, interventions, assists with early detection and interventions for young children. Music therapy offers a wide range of engaging activities with the use of instruments, movement, rhythmic activities and social interactions. Learning and play are connected in this enticing medium. Participation in music and music therapy provides and enhances foundational academic skills in math, language, gross and fine motor skill development, and listening. Sessions are designed specifically to meet the needs of each group or individual through the use of preferred music.
