Music therapy is the use of music by a credentialed music therapy to support therapeutic needs. Our music therapy groups offer a variety of music therapy and music interventions that support the use of motor skills by playing instruments and dancing, communication skills through singing and cognitive skills by learning music notes, rhythms and making musical choices, emotional recognition through song listening and social skills by interacting with the therapist and the group making music!
Rockin Rhythm Sticks
Participants will demonstrate various rhythms with provided rhythm sticks or homemade rhythm sticks. Participants will learn basic rhythms and note values, apply those rhythms to a variety of patterns and well-known songs and demonstrate them individually and/or with the group. The music therapist will use visual supports, videos, mirroring exercises and modeling to increase success. Don’t worry about being perfect! Just grab your sticks and have some fun!
