If you've never been to a music therapy session, you might be wondering what to expect. Music therapy is usually a recurring practice where the music therapist actively works with you to create and use music—this can occur as a private session or in a group setting.
Each music therapy session is highly individualized and takes into consideration your emotional health, cognitive skills, physical abilities, and creative interests. A music therapist at reNu Medical & Injury Center will start off your first session with a series of questions to figure out your current health status and identify the best music therapy treatments to help you achieve optimal wellness. This can include learning how to play a musical instrument, listening to different genres of music, composing songs, or drumming.
Music therapy sessions require an accurate evaluation by a board-certified music therapist to be effective.
