Introduction: Music Therapy is the strategic use of interactive music interventions to work towards achieving a therapeutic goal. Goals in music therapy commonly include: improving communication skills, academic or cognitive skills, gross and fine motor skills, emotional skills, or social skills. Since music is a non-threatening medium, this type of therapy is effective and enjoyable for children. Some examples of children that could benefit from music therapy might exhibit symptoms of ADD & ADHD, autism or Asberger's syndrome, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, specific learning disabilities, visual impairments, speech or language impairments, or down syndrome. I accept clients with diagnosed disabilities and also those without any diagnosis. As long as the parents have concerns with the child's development, I will address those concerns through music therapy. Music Therapy services at Creative Canton Music Studio will start with a consultation to determine whether the client might benefit from music therapy. An assessment will be given in the first session to evaluate skills and identify areas that may need improvement. The therapist will create an individualized therapy plan with goals for the client. Regular 30 minute music therapy sessions will then occur once per week which include customized musical activities to help the client reach the therapeutic goals. Documentation of progress will be taken in each session and is made available to the client at the client's request. Courtney Pugh received her Bachelor's degree in Music Therapy from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio and received her board-certification in August of 2009.
