What is music therapy?
Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music to accomplish individualized, functional, non-musical goals within a therapeutic relationship. These goals can range from eye contact or turn taking to improving speech and motor movements like walking.
Who are Board Certified Music Therapists (MT-BC)?
Board Certified Music Therapists (MT-BC) at Altitunes trained as musicians, therapists and scientists and have completed a music therapy program approved by the American Music Therapy Association. Applied music therapy techniques produce valid and measureable results in physical, cognitive and social goal areas and use the elements of music to do this. Music is such a great tool because it reaches all parts of the brain and is non-invasive, safe and motivating for adults as well as music therapy for kids. Music therapy improves learning, brain function, and quality of life for children and adults who are well and meet the needs of those with disabilities are illness.
