What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is an allied health field made up of highly educated and specialized professionals who engage clients in music exercises to help them improve life skills. Music Therapists have all graduated from accredited universities and training programs and are certified by the CBMT. Music therapists help people build functional skills to navigate a world that is simply not made for everyone – and we help through music and creativity.

Music therapists can be found in all sorts of settings and facilities – schools, memory care centers, hospice, and hospitals – but our music therapists are especially equipped to help children diagnosed with autism, ADHD, learning difficulties, and developmental disabilities. We use music to address speech goals, social skills, executive functioning, coping strategies, and self expression.
