Music Therapy

Welcome

As we observe various musical communities throughout the Windsor Essex area, the focus with regards to the scope of the types of those selected has largely been reserved for various ethnic or genre-specific groups. Unlike these communities, whose links are more so symbolic in terms of the circumstances surrounding their respective formations, there exist other groups who commune over far more tangible, shared experiences; such as those with disabilities, be they mental or physical.

Windsor Essex is home to several institutions that offer various activities and rehabilitative treatments that serve to aid those living with disabilities, impairment, emotional disorders or even those recovering from physical injury. One of the more common programs offered among these facilities is Music Therapy, a practice that seeks to provide treatment through a wide array of musical activities which combine sensory perception, physical mobility, and a number of other components as a means to accomplish a particular goal. Many of these programs are offered in both group or individual sessions as a means of catering to the unique needs of their clients.
