In the context of music and music making, the music therapist works toward non-musical outcomes based on the needs of the participant. Individual or small group sessions are available with a registered board-certified music therapist or a music therapy student. An initial assessment will be required before entrance into the program. All persons with special needs and interest in music are welcome.
