"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development."

Dr. Clive Robbins
(Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Clinic)



We provide consultative and collaborative music therapy services for clients in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and Houston metro areas. Our home and facility-based individualized programs benefit those that are non-musical as well as musical, and are determined upon the therapist's assessment of the client's overall cognitive, communication, socialization, and motor abilities. Due to the flexible nature of music therapy, musical interventions such as (instrumental improvisation, movement to music, auditory processing through singing, percussion, and songwriting), can be adapted to elicit positive results in overall functioning. Some examples of these adaptations include:

 

-color-coding for children who are not able to read traditional music notation.

 

-use of schedules, scripts, and visual aids to structure the session and reduce frustration and anxiety

 

-focus on the child's preferred songs and musical genres

 

-use of musical exploration and improvisation to increase creativity

 

-sensory-based approaches that assist in auditory stimulation tolerance

 


People of all ages, backgrounds, interests, and levels of functioning may receive music therapy. Clients/patients need not possess any musical skills.
