WE ARE NOW OFFERING ONLINE MUSIC THERAPY SESSIONS
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Rhythm Village are now running online Music Therapy Sessions. These interactive sessions are proving to be very successful, with great feedback from all involved. During these times of social distancing and isolation, music therapy online offers a welcome relief, a meaningful goal-oriented activity and an opportunity to release tension and reduce anxiety.
The Rhythm Village is proud of the great milestones we have achieved in our private music therapy sessions. Our private sessions take place at the homes of our clients, or in Adult Day Centres or in Community Centres. They are generally conducted on a one-on-one basis, but can also be run in small groups of 3 or 4 people.
We work with parents and carers to identify the needs of our students and create customised programs for each client, to ensure we are constantly working towards these goals and objectives.
Our private therapy sessions can work towards different learning outcomes for individual clients, such as:
- Improving communication
- Improving physical dexterity
- Keeping on task and following instruction
- Promoting engagement and focus
- Stimulating curiosity and cooperation
- Aiding relaxation
- Inciting creativity and confidence
These sessions usually involve exploring and enjoying a range of instruments together, or for higher functioning clients, these sessions can also help them work towards learning an instrument, such as guitar, piano or drums.
As The Rhythm Village is a registered NDIS Service Provider, you may be able to access our private music therapy sessions as part of your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plans.
