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. 

There are a variety of ways to fund Music Therapy services. Grants, Scholarships, and Private Pay are most common. Did you know we are an approved provider with NCSEAA? Music Therapy can also be funded by FSA cards. Some other resources include Autism Care Today, Bee Mighty, First Hand Foundation, Giving Angels Foundation, Kids with PossAbilities, Gaston Community Foundation, Hudson Smiles Music Therapy Scholarship & The Arc.
