TRADITIONAL MUSIC THERAPY SERVICES
Imagine the Possibilities Music Therapy & Piano Studio, LLC currently provides traditional music therapy services for children ages 0 – 6th grade. Therapists are able to work with most suspected and diagnosed disabilities as well as any life crisis events and stressors that a child might experience. A child can be referred by parents, teachers, other therapists, and physicians for music therapy services. Parents/guardians are welcome to contact the therapist to schedule a time (initial consult) to learn more about music therapy and to ask questions at no cost to them. Sessions are held at various sites depending on the referral. The various stages of participating in the music therapy program are below:
1. Initial Meeting —– Once the parents/guardians have decided to begin music therapy services for their child, the music therapist will meet with the parents/guardians and possibly others (for example a team meeting at school) to discuss concerns, potential goals, and to complete paperwork.
2. Initial Assessment of the child —– The music therapist meets with the child individually 2-3 times (depends on age) to assess needs/concerns. The music therapist will also determine whether music therapy is appropriate and will benefit the child. If music therapy is appropriate the child is then enrolled in either individual sessions or a small group session.
3. The Music Therapy Process —– Assessment (3-4 sessions) to determine the child’s strengths and needs takes place first. Baseline sessions follow which determine the child’s current level of functioning in the skill area(s) referred. A goal or treatment plan is then written. The music therapist will utilize music to reach the goals in the plan. Music activities include, but are not limited to, singing, rhythm instruments and drums, movement, and songwriting. Parents/guardians will receive a more complete description of the music therapy process once their child is enrolled.
