WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY?
As defined by the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (CAMT, June 2016), Music Therapy is a discipline in which credentialed professionals (MTA*) use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health, and well-being. Music therapists use music safely and ethically to address human needs within cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physical, social, and spiritual domains.

Are you looking to improve the resident's quality of life while meeting specific goals and objectives? I incorporate various music therapy interventions and techniques to meet their needs.
Handchime Choir Group Therapy Sessions
In addition to group music therapy, I also conduct handchime choirs, which is a wonderful way to help residents stay fit and alert by exercising their cognitive and motor skills. It's also a great way to get families and communities involved when we hold concerts throughout the year.
