“Music therapy works on so many levels – physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. 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 and increased abilities in pre-reading and pre-math. I was proud to offer this option to children in “my” Head Start program for over 20 years!”
