Music therapy as Educational Enrichment

Young Boy

What are the benefits of music therapy as an educational enrichment program in schools?

  • Students can work on such domains as “Social Skills” which can be effectively learned in a small group setting.
  • The cost for the service can be spread across  the students.
  • Teachers can learn effective music-related strategies from a board-certified music therapist.
  • Teachers can use the acquired strategies in their classrooms.
