FAQs

WHAT IS A TYPICAL SESSION LIKE?

Part of what makes music therapy so powerful is that no two sessions are the same! Whether you are coming in for talk therapy or music therapy, each session is tailored to each client’s goals and objectives, which can change from minute-to-minute. Our processes involve both the therapist and client, and we will shift our session focus and goals in real time to reflect the needs of the individual.

DO I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SING OR PLAY AN INSTRUMENT?

You do not need ANY prior music experience to engage in music therapy sessions. Music interventions include music listening, songwriting, guided meditations, mindfulness and music interventions, body relaxations, and more!

Music therapy techniques allow people with no prior music experience

to engage in active music-making.
