Music Therapy is a discipline in which accredited music therapy professionals use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health and well-being.
Music therapy can be used to meet client-specific goals and improve skills in areas such as language-specific goals in verbal communication, social skill development, sensory issues, perceptual and motor skills, behaviour, cognition and personal independence. Clients shown to benefit from music therapy include:
The Beckett School at Laurier is please to introduce music therapy sessions to the public in a group or individual format. Our music therapists are mobile and can travel to you.
Linda Gambell will work towards these goals with a variety of musical activities including exploration of instruments, singing, and movement, all within familiar and improvised music. Adolescents will also participate in composing original music and songs. Development of fine and gross motor skills, vocalization, and creative self-expression may also be facilitated through active music making.

Everyone has the ability to learn and experience music, but a traditional lesson structure or format may not work for every person desiring music education. The potential for therapeutic music education arises from the overlapping space between the fields of music therapy and music education and provides each individual the opportunity for music study using a lesson format adapted to the specific needs of the individual.
