Music Therapy

Music therapy is the use of music to promote, maintain and restore psychological, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Music therapists use the power of music to connect with patients and families and provide outlets for expression of feelings, relaxation/stimulation, and communication.  

As with all professional services, music therapists work via referral from the inter-professional team.
While all children can benefit from music therapy, our therapists are especially adept at supporting children who are having difficulty coping, exhibiting concerning behaviours (withdrawn or acting out), and those who are unable to communicate via other outlets.
