10am group: The New Kids
This group is offered once per month at no charge to families. Families may attend three times to enable the child to understand and acclimate to the environment. Siblings are welcome to attend. The goal of this session is to provide a safe environment for children to interact and engage with one another through music. The session will include many musical opportunities for children to step outside of their comfort zone with unconditional positive regard and support. Parents attend with the children. Maximum attendance: 6 children.
11:15 group: The Seasoned Kids
This group is offered once per month for continuing clients at a cost of $10-$20/family (sliding scale). Siblings are welcome to attend. Because we are more familiar with the members of this group, we are able to create music therapy experiences that are catered to the group members. The focus will be on recreational music experience, self expression, and community. Parents attend with the children. Maximum attendance: 8 children. *If you want to register for this group but wish to pay a different price than what is available on this site, please call or email and we will happily accomodate.
Please only register the child on the child attending the group. During the registration process, you'll have the opportunity to provide more information about parents and siblings.
If you're interested in weekly groups for your child, please look for registration on our facebook page or call us for more information. Because of the continuity and familiarity with group members,weekly groups are typically the most beneficial experience for children.
