MUSIC THERAPY

IMPROVE and ENHANCE

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 that can be reached through the creative process. Clinical and evidence-based, this program relies on the use of music interventions in a therapeutic relationship with a credentialed professional.

MUSIC THERAPY INTERVENTION CAN BE DESIGNED TO:

  • Promote Wellness
  • Manage Stress
  • Alleviate Pain
  • Enhance Memory
  • Improve Communication
  • Promote Physical Rehabilitation

PMAC’s certified music therapist, Ginna Macdonald, welcomes students of all ages and abilities and works with them to establish and meet goals, while encouraging self-expression and creative development. Music therapy has proven effective for many different types of disabilities and challenges, even in those who are resistive to traditional treatment approaches.

INDIVIDUAL MUSIC THERAPY

Individual sessions enable the therapist to work on 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 RATES:
Private music therapy sessions are offered weekly for a 16-week semester:
30-MINUTE LESSONS: $760 per semester

NEW CLIENTS
New clients will start with a One-Hour Assessment Session where Ginna will recommend a Music Therapy plan. After the assessment, new clients will be able to start with a six-week trial of 30-minute sessions. New clients may start a trial at any time during the year. After the trial period, clients may continue lessons with their instructor, paying tuition prorated for remainder of the semester.
One-Time Fee for the Music Therapy Assessment | $100
Music Therapy Six-week trial | $285

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. Group rates may differ from individual session rates.
