MUSIC THERAPY ASSESSMENT
Music Therapy Assessments Include:
Collecting medical and personal background information about the person receiving services
Observation in a non-music therapy environment
(If available) Observation in more than one environment (i.e. residence, community, educational setting, or other therapy sessions)
Observation in a music therapy setting
Every music therapy session is different because the therapist responds in a unique way to the person’s needs and creative direction. Most music therapy sessions consist of live musical engagement through instrument and vocal performance, musical improvisation, moving to music, music composition and/ or passive music listening. Often Music Therapy goals are non-musical in nature.

WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY & WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Music Therapy is an established, evidenced-based, health profession provided by a Board Certified Music Therapist.
Music is used, within a therapeutic relationship, to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals.
Through musical involvement our abilities can be strengthened and transferred to other, non-musical, areas of our life. -AMTA, 2019
