Infancy and Early Childhood
Studies have shown that early exposure to music, and music-based learning benefits the growth of all areas of a baby’s brain.

Music therapy uses music in a fun and engaging setting to promote positive change. It plays a crucial role in the developing brain and can help guide your child through infancy and childhood. Incorporating music therapy into your child’s life can help with the healthy development of skills such as executive functioning, body/spatial awareness, and social, language, and pre-academic skills.
Music therapy supports healthy parent-infant attachment as well as infant development whether your circumstances include a premature birth, disabilities/developmental delays, post partum depression, or just the normal stresses of being a new mom or dad. Musical play is used to facilitate bonding between you and your baby.

Baby and Me Music Groups

In these fun and relaxing group sessions, babies will be introduced to a variety of songs and lullabies, have an opportunity to explore their surroundings through music, and play with a variety of different instruments. Stimulating and engaging music activities will work on the development of body/spatial awareness, social skills, motor skills, and pre-academic skills.  Parents have an opportunity to engage with their child in a warm and inviting atmosphere, meet other new parents, and learn new songs to take home with them.

Music Therapy works towards reducing many common symptoms associated with Parkinson’s, such as disrupted speech patterns or loss of motor skill. All techniques help to maintain an improved overall quality of life, and best of all, they’re fun!
