Ages 5 - Adult
Music exploration to achieve your goals
Spring Semester begins January 30!
Music Therapy Lessons
Individual weekly sessions provide opportunities for individuals of all abilities and ages to experience self-expression through active exploration of percussion instruments, piano, guitar, ukelele and voice. Our Board Certified music therapist use adaptive and compensatory techniques to help individuals develop mentally, physically or socially, to influence behavior or mood, and/or to facilitate musical achievement. Students pursuing musical goals in voice or an instrument are invited to participate in a unique music therapy recital, designed to celebrate their individual achievement. Individuals participating in music therapy at Powers Music School include individuals with:
- Language Delays
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Sensory Integration Disorder
- Mobility Impairments
Central to music therapy is the use of familiar and preferred music. Combined with music theory, a music therapy lesson uses the musical preferences of the student to guide the learning process. Our music therapist uses accompaniment techniques, GarageBand technology, and modified musical notation to properly support each student's learning style and strengths.
New Students: Interested families should call the School to arrange for an initial telephone consultation followed by a $75 trial lesson with the Chair of the Music Therapy Department. After the initial trial lesson, private lesson rates apply.
