MUSIC THERAPY

with TEENS & TWEENS

detailed information here

Music therapy (MT) harnesses the energy of music for the benefit of everyone. In our sessions, we'll play together, rap, sing, share, and have fun together in a safe environment. MT will address the issues of adolescence to benefit social skills, relating to peers, emotional stability, positive body image, self-esteem, bullying, safety, and coping with more complicated relationships. Participants will work together as a group to explore these issues and grow trust in one another. Instructor has worked with tweens, teens and at-risk youth for over 20 years, so has extensive experience with these groups. JAB is a nationally Board-Certified Music Therapist and an international performing, touring, and recording artist.

 

In addition to the topics detailed below, each session will open with a "Let’s check in" song, followed by an ice-breaker as transition, and close with a "See ya later" song. For at-risk youth, MT can modify sessions to address issues such as substance abuse, teen pregnancy and delinquency. Throughout every minute of every session MT will guide the group using a wide array of evidence-based activities, instruments, and mediums with music favored by the group to encourage the most successful outcomes.
