What is music therapy?
Music therapy is a discipline in which Certified Music Therapists (MTAs) 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, 2020
Music therapy is for everyone, and you don't need to be a musician or have any musical training to benefit from a session.
An accredited Music Therapist (MTA) must complete a university based degree in music therapy, complete a 1000+ hour supervised internship as well as pass a national exam. Continuing education credits are required to maintain status.
Individual and Group Music Therapy Sessions Available.
