Music

Music Therapy meets monthly in 3 different locations around the Bay area. Music Therapy provides physical and mental stimulation. In this environment, the children and their parents sing songs, play simple instruments or clap rhythms. Research supports connections between speech and singing, rhythm and motor behavior as well as overall ability of music to enhance mood, attention and behavior to optimize the student’s ability to learn and interact.

Facilitator: Nicole Payne, Board Certified Music Therapist

Registration is required for each class. Please click on the date to go to the registration page.
