Music Therapy is an evidence-based clinical health profession, in which a nationally Board Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC), utilizes music within a therapeutic relationship, to address non-musical goals, such as the physical, cognitive, social and emotional needs of the client. Through musical involvement in a therapeutic context, clients’ strengths are leveraged and generalized towards success in other areas of their lives.

NEUROLOGIC MUSIC THERAPY
Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is a specialized form of music therapy that uses standardized, evidenced-based, and peer-reviewed techniques to treat conditions relating the central nervous system (CNS). Using specific elements of music, such as rhythm, melody, harmonics, tempo, and dynamics, neuro-plasticity can be achieved and new neural pathways can be developed and rerouted to optimize brain function. Neurologic music therapy has been scientifically proven to be an effective tool in sensorimotor, cognitive, speech and language, psycho-social, and emotional habilitation and rehabilitation. The Neurologic Music Therapist has completed additional training, more advanced than standard music therapy certification, in order to acquire and retain the elevated classification of NMT.
