Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to
accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed
professional who has completed an approved music therapy degree program.
Music Therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a
therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of
individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music
therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or
listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, client's
abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives.

The music therapist sees the majority of the Ann Storck Center’s adults for individual
music therapy sessions on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis. Group music therapy
sessions occur on a weekly basis at the Adult Day Training program and also at our
residential facilities in the Pembroke Pines Cluster. Our early intervention preschool
students receive group music therapy sessions in the classroom setting, both during
school hours and during the aftercare program, as part of the music therapy internship program.
