We focus on cognitive behavioral approaches, and center on our clients and families in our treatment.
You can set up a free consultation with the team at Note-able Music Therapy to discuss through the many benefits your child or family member will receive both within and outside of their music therapy session.
Once the evaluation is completed, a treatment plan is constructed and activated. After 90 days a Progress Note Review is sent to the family to demonstrate current progress.
Once all goals and objectives have been achieved by the client, a re-evaluation is given to determine current needs and continuation of music therapy services.
The length of a music therapy session is is determined by the individual’s need. The initial evaluation is 60 minutes. Music therapy sessions can range from 45-60 minutes.
No, you do not need to have any instruments at home unless it is an adaptive music lesson. The music therapist will expose the individual to a variety of instruments to make sure the instrument of interest is appropriate for his/her skill level and environment.
Once an instrument has been chosen the music therapist will provide resources for the family to find cost effective instruments to begin within the home environment. It is highly encouraged to have the adaptive instrument in the home environment for proper carry over of skills learned during the session and to complete practicing when therapist is not present.

Success oriented is when a music therapist uses the individual’s strengths and needs to establish measurable and obtainable goals and objectives.
Creating activities for the individual based on a even balance of their needs and strengths makes an appropriate and safe environment to maximize learning of any skill.
Are there any limits to what kind of music you can share with my child or my loved one or do you only sing nursery rhymes and children's tunes?
There are no limits — We don’t sing only nursery rhymes or children’s tunes! The music that is used within the music therapy session is client preferred and acts as a motivator for the individual during music therapy sessions.
