Music Therapy uses music, sound, imagery and movement to promote health and wellness. We use music to work on non musical goals. I am pleased to offer my expertise and show our youth and young adults all the creative ways that music can improve focus, enhance memory, promote healthy expression, increase self worth, regulate mood, and develop musical skills. I would provide hands-on learning culminating in a group performance from the participants who will have take away tools to immediately start managing their emotions and if nothing else, will bring them joy, fun, an increased sense of self worth, and tangible takeaway tools to regulate their mood.
