Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

About Music Therapy

Music Therapy is a discipline in which accredited music therapy professionals use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health and well-being.

Music therapy can be used to meet client-specific goals and improve skills in areas such as language-specific goals in verbal communication, social skill development, sensory issues, perceptual and motor skills, behaviour, cognition and personal independence. Clients shown to benefit from music therapy include:

  • autism and other pervasive developmental disorders
  • hearing impairments
  • visual impairments
  • emotional traumas
  • mental health challenges
  • communication disorders
  • physical challenges
  • neurocognitive disorders (Dementia, Parkinson’s, and Traumatic Brain Injury)
  • victims of abuse
  • teens at risk
  • individuals seeking personal growth

The Beckett School at Laurier is please to introduce music therapy sessions to the public in a group or individual format. Our music therapists are mobile and can travel to you.

  • Music and the Brain (for individuals with acquired brain injuries and neurodevelopmental brain disabilities)
  • Music Therapy Caregivers Group

Individual Therapeutic Music Education

Everyone has the ability to learn and experience music, but a traditional lesson structure or format may not work for every person desiring music education. The potential for therapeutic music education arises from the overlapping space between the fields of music therapy and music education and provides each individual the opportunity for music study using a lesson format adapted to the specific needs of the individual.
