In partnership with Anderson Music Therapy, over 100 clients have received over $60,000 worth of music therapy.

Through a variety of group and individual therapy programs, clients ranging from 3-year-olds with Down Syndrome to veterans with PTSD have realized the power of sound in a unique and impactful way.

“Everyone should have access to services that allow them to live the fullest life possible.”

Participants are able to explore the concepts of music therapy, while providing an enjoyable yet purposeful activities and resources for families to share with their children. Often, music therapy allows a family to see the child in a new  light as the child’s strengths are manifested in the music therapy environment.

Benefits of Music Therapy

  • Music can encourage socialization, self-expression, communication and motor development.
  • Music stimulates all of the senses and involves the child at many levels. This “multi-modal approach” facilitates many developmental skills.
  • Quality learning and maximum participation occur when children are permitted to experience the joy of play. The medium of music therapy allows this play to occur naturally and frequently.
  • Music is highly motivating, yet it can also have a calming and relaxing effect. Enjoyable music activities are designed to be success-oriented and make children feel better about themselves.
  • Music therapy can help a child manage pain and stressful situations.
  • Because the brain processes music in both hemispheres, music can stimulate cognitive functioning and may be used for remediation of speech/language skills.
