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:
The Laurier Academy of Music and Arts is pleased to introduce music therapy sessions to the public in a group or individual format.
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.
Group therapy sessions may be available dependent on enrolment.
