MUSIC THERAPY

“Music is a therapy. It is a communication far more powerful than words,
far more immediate,  far more efficient."

- Yehudi Menuhin

Music therapy is beneficial to people of every age; children, teenagers, adults and seniors. Not only does music therapy help individuals communicate better, but it also provides a therapeutic channel to address socio-emotional barriers.

She brings with her not only her expertise but also her amazing energy and unique experiences. She is a source of inspiration to our members and encourages everyone to enjoy music.

How Does Music Therapy Help?

Music therapy is the use of all elements of music to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical and emotional well-being. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities that facilitate various forms of personal development. It can result in improved communication, expression and memory work.

Our Program

Allegro Music School prides itself on providing affordable music therapy services near you. Our music therapy program is offered in a group or one-on-one class setting with activities designed to meet specific goals such as fine motor/gross motor skills, speech and vocalization, and memory work. Activities include:

 

  • Singing

  • Songwriting

  • Playing instruments

  • Storytelling

  • Improvising

  • Listening

  • Moving to music

 

We invite caregivers to be observers and allow them to participate during the session. They can also simply enjoy their time while they wait for the session to end. While it is true that music is fun, there are many reasons as to why it is also therapeutic. It is a well-known fact that music has beneficial results for our health. This includes reducing stress levels, improving respiration, enhancing focus and boosting the immune system amongst others. As such, music therapy is a highly effective mechanism for tackling negative emotions and consequently behavioural issues.
