Music Lessons

People of all abilities can benefit from music lessons. Music enriches one’s life in countless ways – but did you know that learning an instrument has been proven to be beneficial? Music can develop and strengthen motor, cognitive, social, emotional, and communication skills. Playing a musical instrument fosters creativity while developing fine-motor skills, discipline, leisure skills, and self-esteem.  Everyone should have the opportunity to learn, create, and perform music. Adaptations to music lessons can make music accessible to all students (Kuester, 2011).

Board-certified music therapists are experts when it comes to accommodating and adapting musical environments. They do it in their clinical work constantly, and can easily transfer these skills into music lessons. Whether you have a learning difference, a physical disability, high anxiety, or just want an accommodating music teacher, you might enjoy taking music lessons from a music therapist.
