Music Therapy for Children with Autism – CANCELED

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by music therapists. The therapist will assess emotional well-being, physical health, social functioning, communication abilities, and cognitive skills through musical responses; design music sessions for individuals and groups using music improvisation, receptive music listening, song writing, lyric discussion, music and imagery, music performance, and learning through music.

The child doesn’t have to have some particular music ability to benefit from music therapy. And there is not one particular style of music that is more therapeutic than all the rest. All styles of music can be useful in effecting change in the child’s life.

School and University Entrance Auditions Preparation – CANCELED

Whether instrumental or vocal, a customized preparatory program following the school’s requirements is designed for the students to develop the necessary skills in performing, composing, and appraising.
