What summer camps do you offer?

We have summer camps for students of all ages! Click here for more information about our summer camps at The Music Settlement.

Do you have a waitlist?

Yes, we currently have a waitlist.

When are your programming periods?

For returning clients, our enrollment period for the full year runs July-June. New clients can enroll at any time.

What's the enrollment process?

The first step is to complete an intake form. Once received, we will contact you to notify you of your placement status. When we have availability and a music therapist has been identified, we will schedule an assessment. At that time, we will request additional financial aid forms or other related reports, such as an IEP, if needed.

Music therapy is expensive. We need help affording it.

Income-based Financial Aid and other funding awards are available to all qualified applicants. We are available to advise and assist you in gaining information and support to finance music therapy services.

Do you take medical insurance?

No, we do not bill insurance directly. We are happy to provide you with a detailed receipt that you can work together with your insurance company to seek reimbursement.

Do you take any 3rd party reimbursement?

Yes, we do! We have a great deal of experience in working with third parties for support of music therapy services. We can provide assistance for individuals and families who wish to apply for third party funding (e.g. Jon Peterson Special Needs and Autism Scholarships, various County Boards of Developmental Disabilities, foundations, trusts or other sources of income).

Who can benefit from music therapy?

Children and adults facing a wide range of life’s challenges may be positively impacted by participation in music therapy.

All you want for your child is to find something they are passionate about and he has found music, due in large part to The Music Settlement.
