Music Therapy

Category: Therapy
Description
Music therapy is an established health care profession that uses music to accomplish therapeutic goals. In a typical session, the client and therapist create musical experiences through instrument play, movement to music, singing, vocalizing, and song-writing. These experiences are focused on speech, occupational, physical, academic, and/or behavioral goals. Clients do not need any musical skill or experience to participate in and benefit from music therapy.

Guitar Teacher

Category: Music
Description
I have been a professional guitar teacher for 10 years teaching kids, adolescents, and adults. I began teaching after receiving my master’s degree in Music Therapy from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. My approach to teaching is very student based. I like to teach chords, riffs, technique, and theory by using the songs that my students love to listen to. I have found that this approach maintains the students interest and motivates them to practice. It is just so much more fun to practice a song that you love and that you choose rather than being told what to play. I also like to teach songwriting and composition and I approach this in a way that empowers my students to create great music on their own. I believe that performance is another element of learning an instrument that is invaluable. Through my yearly spring and winter recitals I teach students how to successfully perform in front of others
