Joyful Music Therapy provides individual music therapy sessions for clients throughout Central Florida. During each session our music therapist will facilitate music interventions designed to work on specific goals created from an initial assessment. Music Therapy group sessions are designed to bring clients together for shared musical interventions where they can develop and practice valuable social skills in a structured setting. Sessions are designed to reach specific goals and meet the needs of the group members.
Our music therapists specialize in adapting instructional methods based on individual strengths and learning styles. Similar to traditional music education programs, adapted music lessons focus on improving musical skills, proficiency on a specific instrument, appreciation and understanding of musical styles, promoting self-confidence, and encouraging performances through bi-annual recitals. For health care and educational facilities, Music Therapy provides not only a cost-effective method of addressing therapeutic goals, but also the opportunity for creative expression through music that is all too often denied to those with special needs. Music therapy has been shown to improve the overall quality of life across all ages and populations.
