Music Therapy Associates started in 1990. It has grown over the years and enables us to serve many students/clients of all ages and abilities!
We provide instrument and vocal lessons as well as music therapy services for individuals of all ages and abilities! Our therapists have experience with individuals with autism, developmental delay, Down Syndrome, Alzheimer's and other dementias, Cerebral Palsy, those suffering from a stroke, traumatic brain injury or those recovering from surgery.
I advise those looking for a music therapist or music teacher to make sure they are looking at an indivdual or business with a lot of experience and one that can be flexible with their lessons/music therapy sessions. The fact that we can work with individuals on multiple instruments as well as teach music theory (reading and writing music) has been very beneficial for our students/clients. Often the student/client is unsure or unable to focus for the entire lesson/session on one instrument so we provide other engaging activities which benefit the learning of an instrument or music therapy.
Students/clients should determine how serious they are about studying an instrument/voice and look at days/times (as well as possible location) that works best for them. They need to feel comfortable with the person who will be working with them (especially if it is services like ours where we are coming into their home).
