How do I get started?

You'll start with a free consultation.  Your questions about tele music therapy and how it could be of benefit to you or your loved one will be discussed.  We'll also explain the simple process involved in receiving music therapy services via telehealth.

What is a tele music therapy session?

Once you're registered to receive music therapy with Music Therapy at Home, your first session is an initial assessment.  In the assessment your music therapist learns more about you, your needs, preferences and what you hope to achieve through music therapy.  This will help determine your goals and therapy plan.

 

Your tele music therapy sessions are individualized to help you accomplish your goals. Live music interventions may include singing, music listening, movement, instrument play, songwriting, guided relaxation experiences with music, improvisation and other opportunities for creative expression.

Session length is usually 45-60 minutes, depending upon the client's needs and goals.  This includes documentation and opportunities for family member or caregiver interaction with the music therapist.  To achieve consistent progress towards therapy goals, we recommend weekly sessions.  We're happy to explore the possibility of shorter or less frequent sessions depending on the client's needs.   

 

For current session rates or more information about Music Therapy at Home, please contact us.  At this time we don't bill insurance, though this may change in the future.

With tele music therapy you'll enjoy the convenience of receiving music therapy at home - avoiding traffic, inclement weather and any of the physical challenges travel poses when you have special needs.  Music Therapy at Home empowers you to access a music therapist when there are none available to come to your home or none available in your community.  

Do you or your loved one live in a nursing home, assisted living facility or group home?

Would you like to join your loved one for a session because you aren't able to visit in person?

This is possible with Tele Music Therapy!

One of the exceptional benefits of tele music therapy is that loved ones who aren't present with the client can join the client's session remotely and experience music therapy together.  Whether participating with the client at home or remotely, family members and caregivers may benefit from:
  • an increased sense of connection that comes from sharing music experiences with your loved one 
  • the joy of seeing your loved one respond positively to music
  • the opportunity to learn new skills and approaches to help support your loved one outside of the music therapy session.
