Music therapy at Metro Music Makers is a research-based clinical intervention. We offer music therapy services with board-certified, state-licensed music therapists for children and teens with a wide variety of diagnoses and needs in the Atlanta and Nashville areas. Our music therapists use their education and clinical training to create a targeted treatment plan for your child or teen, using music therapy to address a variety of needs and diagnoses, including but not limited to autism spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD, language/auditory processing disorders, cerebral palsy and emotional or behavioral disorders. They use UnitusTI software to record and track treatment data to better analyze and share your child’s progress in therapy.
If your child or adolescent wants to learn an instrument and has either tried traditional lessons that weren’t the right fit, or you feel they might be more successful learning from someone with the education and training to better meet their needs, adaptive lessons might be for you.
