Individual Music Therapy  sessions are designed to address the needs of each client.  This may include addressing their social, behavior, communication, cognitive, leisure, physical and sensory motor skills. A music therapy assessment takes place initially to explore the individual’s needs, musical interests and abilities.  The client’s goals and objectives are also planned at this time. Reports are written monthly or quarterly to review the client’s progress. We work with infants through adults.
