What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is the use of evidence based interventions to work towards non-musical goals by a board certified music therapist. Goals are based in cognitive areas, social skills, emotional goals, gross and fine motor skills, as well as areas of language and communication. A music therapist is certified by completing a 4 year degree in Music Therapy, completing an 1040 hour internship, and passing the board certification exam.
