A Few Kind Words From Our Clients

We definitely believe the term of music as a universal language. We experienced that music therapy helped our son to improve his motor skills, and it reduced his aggression. Music therapy can also help our son be more active. We will recommend parents whose their children have a special need should have a music therapy session. We also discovered that our son likes to play a harmonica as his new music instrument.

Since our grandson has been involved with Ms. Ericha this past year we have seen a variety of advancements:

 
  • Noise/Auditory processing delay: he is more tolerant of noises, unexpected noises.  His auditory processing time is speeding up, he “hears” what we are saying and responds verbally in a timely manner most all the time.
  • Our grandson is more grounded and cognitively engaged in his surrounding “real” world.
  • He is expressing many thoughts independently and using compound sentences.
  • He is experiencing rhythm – an awakening or awareness about it- just beginning.
  • Cognition and awareness are increasing regarding all sounds and sights surrounding our grandson.  He responds immediately most often, and he is curious about what and where that sound or sight came from. Keeps his creativity active!
Life advancements through music!

Through music therapy our nephew has found his voice and developed a skill he CAN share with family and friends. Music therapy has made it possible for our nephew to attend concerts, plays and movies without any special accommodations. His I.Q. has improved which supports the understanding that young minds are shaped by their genes and through their experiences. Our nephew has learned how to read music which provided another method of participating with classroom learning and community events.

Skills to share and participate with pride
