Direct Service Music Therapy

Music therapy typically takes place weekly at the Music Therapy Connections studio.  Sessions last 30 minutes.  Prior to beginning music therapy treatment, I like to talk with parents/family members and get a sense of the goals I will be addressing with the client. At this time, the parent (and child) can fill me in on music preferences and favorite activities so that our time together is as effective and enjoyable as possible. Each therapy session is tailored for the client’s (or group’s) individual needs and unique abilities. Activities are introduced and changed based on progress made. Parents and siblings are encouraged to participate (unless otherwise noted).

Materials and equipment include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Guitar
  • iPod
  • iPod Speaker
  • Picture Schedule
  • Picture Cards
  • Children’s Books
  • Bells
  • Shakers
  • Hand Drums
  • Harmonicas
  • Tambourines
  • Paddle Drums
  • Rhythm Sticks
The current rate for an individual or group music therapy session is $20. Rates are subject to change, though ample notice will be given in all circumstances.

Consultative Music Therapy

Music Therapy Connections now offers consultative services to clients all over the United States. Music therapy consultation provides strategies, resources, music and materials to teachers, parents, therapists and others who work with children or young adults who can benefit from music therapy.

Consultative services are based on the child's or classroom's unique needs, and are personalized to address the goals and objectives being addressed at school and/or home. All of the following fall under the umbrella of consultative services:
  • Music activities for use by other professionals or caregivers
  • Music recreation/leisure activities
  • Use of music to enhance current activities and programming
  • Music in day care or preschool
  • Birthday parties
Prices vary depending on the specific needs of the student(s) being served. Click here for more information about consultative services.
