Music therapy uses music as a tool to help individuals - from children to seniors - transform and improve the quality of their lives, while addressing each individual’s unique emotional, physical, cognitive and social needs. Reaching beyond barriers of social, communicative, and cognitive limitations, music therapy offers individuals with disabilities a means to develop skills that can be used in everyday life. Through music therapy, individuals can identify and manage various emotional states, and can pursue opportunities for creativity and self-expression.
The Music Therapy department at Levine offers assessments for music therapy services, individual sessions, group sessions, and adapted instrumental lessons for individuals with special needs. Music interventions are individualized to meet the unique needs of each student to provide growth opportunities as well as to foster expression and creativity within each student.
