     Imagine the Possibilities Music Therapy & Piano Studio, LLC, located on Meadowbrook Drive (off of Rt. 3 South) just minutes from Wooster Ohio, provides music therapy services to aid in the development of communication, academic, motor, emotional, and social interaction skills for children ages 0 – sixth grade.  Group music sessions for children and their parents/caregivers are offered through the Learning through Musical Play Early Childhood Music Program.  Services for older children and teenagers will be added soon.   Music is nonthreatening for most children and a fun way to work on improving needed skills!  A music therapist utilizes rhythm instruments, drums, movement props, books, and various age appropriate games to help children to achieve their goals.   For additional information regarding music therapy go to the American Music Therapy Association’s website at   www.musictherapy.org.   The studio also provides piano lessons for all ages and abilities.

The mission of Imagine the Possibilities Music Therapy is to give every child it serves the opportunity to not only imagine what is possible, but to make what is possible a reality by providing quality music therapy services in a safe and nurturing environment.

The mission of the Piano Studio is to provide a structured positive learning experience for each student, child or adult, to explore interests, learn musical skills, and develop academic and social skills.

“Music therapy works on so many levels – physically, socially, emotionally, & instinctually.  And it’s not just for children with disabilities!  Research results are very positive for music therapy opportunities for early learners such as increased attention span & increased abilities in pre-reading & pre-math.  I was proud to offer this option to children in “my” Head Start program for over 20 years!”                 Carla Unkefer, Retired Head Start Director

    Good morning. We are currently taking our granddaughter to lessons in Wadsworth each week. We are wondering where in Wooster you are located, since it may be closer for us.

    Thank you for taking our question.

      I generally do not travel to someone’s home. Which service from Imagine the Possibilities Music Therapy & Piano Studio were you interested in? Where are you located?

    Hello! Our 5-year-old son has bilateral cochlear implants. He does very well with speech and receptive comprehension, but not so well with singing or understanding words in songs. Could music therapy help him with that, or is that just an “age thing”? Thanks!
