Our pioneering Center for Music Therapy was established in 1966 to positively impact the lives of children and adults facing a wide range of life’s challenges. Some of our clients come to us as young children and remain in our programs for decades, providing a therapeutic consistency that benefits both clients and families alike.

Music therapy utilizes music-based interventions in a clinical setting to help a client accomplish specific individualized goals.  It supports learning and the transfer of skills, improves a client’s quality of life, and offers hope to those enduring challenging diagnoses, illness or pain. Music therapy can also benefit people who are working toward rehabilitation or are being served by hospice.
