What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy can address various health and educational objectives, including promoting overall wellness, reducing anxiety and stress, relieving pain, expressing emotions, enhancing memory, improving communication, and supporting physical rehabilitation. Music therapy can improve the quality of life for people with physical or mental health issues.

Resounding Joy’s certified music therapists have completed a specialized undergraduate degree program, a 1,200-hour internship, and a national test administered by the Certification Board of Music Therapists. Their training encompasses biology, psychology, neurology, music theory, medicine, and proficiency in voice, guitar, piano, and percussion. If you or someone you love would benefit from an individual or group music therapy session, please reach out to us today.
