Upcoming music therapy groups at West Hills Music Therapy Studio

West Hills Music Therapy StudioWe just completed our January monthly music therapy groups and have opened registration for February. Our schedule now enables us to see new kids from 10-10:45am and ‘Seasoned Kids’ from 11:15-noon.

 

In addition to our monthly groups, we’re also holding a smaller weekly group.  Registration is now open for our next series, which will begin after Spring Break. Weekly music therapy groups offer the opportunity for growth and musical community for a consistent group of matched clients over an eight week span. These groups will focus on individually assessed needs, and may include self expression, communication, and/or social interaction.  In order for us to form groups of children who are compatible by age and/or level of verbal functioning, please contact us before registering.

This year’s conference focuses on the use of music therapy in the medical setting. We’re flying Elizabeth Stegemöller, Ph.D., MT-BC,  in from Florida to present. The keynote presentation, Your Brain on Music: Translating neuroscience into clinical practice,  is catered to the public and is only $15. More information about the conference can be found on the registration page or OAMT’s website.
