ADAPTED LESSONS & MUSIC THERAPY SERVICES
We offer Adapted Music Lessons taught by our Music Therapist Alicia Pilgrim. Alicia creates a customized, adapted curriculum to cater to each individual student, helping them to set and achieve musical goals. She also provides Music Therapy services, often integrating this approach into Adapted Lesson plans to support clients. Through the support of our trained Music Therapist, students will work not only towards building musical skills, the sessions will also strive to foster & uphold social, physical and emotional health.
We offer a free, 30-minute trial/ assessment appointment with our Music Therapist. This is the first step. In this first meeting, Alicia will use her expertise to assess whether to recommend either a Music Therapy approach, or Adapted Lesson planning. From there we can move on to registration for weekly sessions.
Please contact us with any questions or to inquire about booking a free assessment.
