Are your students experiencing any of the following?

Difficulty with speech and communication
Troubles with sensory integration
Music therapy can address and meet the cognitive, academic, motor, social, and emotional needs of your students. We focus on the whole student in development and health.
Why does music therapy work in school settings?
- Music therapy is used as a tool for capturing attention so that your students can listen and attend to tasks put before them.
- Music therapy creates togetherness so that your students create connections with other students.
- Music therapy can be applied as a tool for developing your student’s communication and speech skills.
- Music therapy is based in rhythm, which helps your students improve motor movement and coordination.
Music therapy often reaches individuals in a way that traditional therapies do not.
How can we help you?
Individual or group music therapy sessions that are available in your school, educational setting, or community-based setting. We provide services in New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.
At the beginning of therapeutic treatment, our board-certified music therapists perform a music therapy assessment for the individual or group. The therapist evaluates the responses, strengths, and needs of the individual or group.
After the assessment is completed, treatment begins with a schedule that works for the client(s), caregiver, staff, and therapist.
What people are saying about music therapy at GSMT?
“My special needs grandson was responding to music so I brought him to Elizabeth for music therapy. She has been able to take his love of music and transform it into a learning experience for him. The individual care and focus is what he needs and Elizabeth has been able to always take him ‘one step further’ and for this we are very grateful.” ~ Jacki, Grandmother

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning."
