Group music therapy sessions are designed to bring individuals of all levels of ability and disability together to make music and to develop and practice valuable social skills in a structured setting.  Sessions are tailored to the needs of the group members and are designed and led by Board Certified Music Therapists.

Experiences include evidence-based practices (EBP) that are carefully selected for their therapeutic value and that complement other healthcare modalities, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
