Where the words leave, music begins….
Music therapy improves the quality of life for persons who are well and meets the needs of children and adults with physical, emotional, social or cognitive challenges. Music bridges cultures, abilities and generations.
Music therapy interventions can be designed to:
- promote wellness
- manage stress
- express feelings
- improve memory
- improve communication
- improve motor skills
Previous music training or experience is not required to participate in a music therapy session. Music is for everyone.
Eric and Lynn Miller are music therapists who conduct sessions at the Healing Arts Studio in Phoenixville, Pa. They have an improvisational model of meeting the participant where they are in that moment.
Expressive Therapy Concepts provides outreach services in homes, schools, hospitals, centers and institutions with Eric, Lynn or another qualified music therapist.
