Music Therapy & MoreSM

Connecting for Kids Music Therapy and More(SM)

This program is designed for children (ages 0-6 years) who are struggling in an area of development. Join us for a hands-on program designed to teach families how to use music to improve their child's motor, communication and social skills as well as behavior. This program is led by a Board-Certified Music Therapist.

Music Therapy & More welcomes children of all abilities. Some children can’t sit for any/all of the 30 minutes - they can explore the room! Some children have limited language - adults can model singing and language for them! Some children have limited motor skills - caregivers can physically assist their child! The music therapist will help guide you during the session!

Siblings (ages 0-6 years) may also attend but must register separately.

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
