CMC offers weekly, individual music therapy for children and adults with special needs. This program is suitable for people with physical, emotional, cognitive and social challenges. Our experienced board certified music therapists are person-centered and provide a platform for individuals of all abilities to achieve personal growth. Clients may develop musical skills and awareness as they work toward their goals. Based on the assessment and input from client and parent/caregiver, an individualized treatment plan may be requested.
