Music therapy In schools
Music therapy within the school setting is a wonderful way for students to develop skills with classmates and have the chance to continue to build and develop these skills throughout the day. An effective school setting model offers children group music therapy as a class as well as 1:1 services to students who need extra support to increase participation and success in the group.
Group music therapy with a class allows for supported and structured skill building that can continue throughout the day and week with the same group of children, building confidence and creating a safe place to practice these skills. Holding 1:1 sessions for children who need additional support allows them to prep and practice before meeting with the group.
