Music therapy is a discipline in which credentialed professionals (MTA*) use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health, and well-being. Music therapists use music safely and ethically to address human needs within cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physical, social, and spiritual domains. (Canadian Association of Music Therapists, 2016)
Music therapists utilize music-based interventions to work with all ages and abilities.
At this time, individual and group music therapy sessions, and adapted music lessons are only available virtually.
Music is a powerful tool that allows our children to express themselves in a creative, non-judgmental. Music therapy should be a key component to all children’s curriculum, particularly those who learn differently.
