MUSIC THERAPY
Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional. It is an effective treatment for many different types of disabilities and challenges, even in those who are resistive to traditional treatment approaches. Music Therapy is used to improve and enhance the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages by setting specific goals accomplished through the creative process. 

MUSIC THERAPY INTERVENTION CAN BE DESIGNED TO:
• Promote Wellness
• Manage Stress
• Alleviate Pain
• Enhance Memory
• Improve Communication
• Promote Physical Rehabilitation

INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY
Individual sessions enable the therapist to work in the specific needs of 
the client, encouraging self-expression and creative development. 
Throughout each session, we will develop functional non-musical goals, 
design therapeutic music interventions to effectively meet goals, and 
document and evaluate ongoing progress.


INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY SESSION RATES:

30 MINUTE SESSIONS: $720
45 MINUTE SESSIONS: $1,080
60 MINUTE SESSIONS: $1,440

therapy clients will participate in a one-hour assessment session at 
time of intake. The cost of the assessment is $100. After the
assessment, we’ll schedule your weekly sessions.

GROUP MUSIC THERAPY:
Groups provide many opportunities to work on social skills and broader 
goals involving communication and listening to others. Sessions are 
designed to help a group with similar needs meet their goals.

“Music and laughter are celebrations of the joys and sorrows of life. My classes with Ginna are fun, deep, loud, and passionate – times two! I hear and feel myself laugh; I hear and feel the music: I’m healing. It’s more than learning to play the piano; it’s about connecting with music daily in a myriad of ways, and I find myself thinking about the enhancements PMAC has instilled into my life every single day. I’m profoundly grateful for the sense of belonging and confidence PMAC gives me. It’s a warm, friendly,
compassionate, safe, fun place, and I’m so glad 
I challenged myself to become a student.”
