INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY
Individual Music Therapy sessions allow for a one-on-one experience between the therapist and the client in order to achieve specific, functional goals. The therapist will determine treatment goals based on the initial evaluation session and assessment of the individual. The therapist will utilize a variety of engaging musical interventions and experiences that are tailored to the strengths and needs of the individual in order to achieve specific treatment outcomes.
GROUP MUSIC THERAPY
Group Music Therapy sessions are designed to bring individuals of all abilities and levels together in a structured, musical setting to develop and foster critical skills. Group sessions are developed to promote growth and development among the group by including a variety of musical experiences to target the group's specific needs. Possible group therapy sessions include, but are not limited to, social skills groups, memory care groups, and teen support groups.
ADAPTED MUSIC LESSONS
In music therapy, the music therapist may use a variety of musical interventions to address their client’s non-musical goals; however, in an adapted music lesson the instructor will use a modified approach to teaching music, including the use of visual aids or modified tuning. Instructional methods are adapted to the individual's learning style, functioning level, strengths and needs. Adapted music lessons are offered on the following instruments: voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele.
TRADITIONAL MUSIC LESSONS
Piano lessons focus on learning music theory and music notation, learning correct hand position and posture, playing scales, ear-training and singing solfege. To teach both theory and technique, NeuroSound Music Therapy uses Bastien Piano.
Guitar lessons focus on learning music theory and music notation, learning chords and correct hand positioning. To teach both theory and technique, NeuroSound Music Therapy uses the Hal Leonard Guitar Series. Students are also encouraged to bring a personal selection of songs to work on during their lessons.
Ukulele lessons focus on learning music theory and music notation, learning simple chords, and correct hand positioning. To teacher both theory and technique, NeuroSound Music Therapy uses Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Books. Students are also encouraged to bring a personal selection of songs to work on during their lessons.
