At WBMT, we provide a person-centered approach to music therapy. Through a variety of music therapy techniques and interventions, we help individuals work towards non-musical goals. Of utmost importance to us is maintaining respect for and presenting with an attitude of presuming intellect for each person we serve. 



Music therapy interventions are designed to help a person and/or group attain short and long term goals.


Examples of goals include:

  • Increase and improve communication skills

  • Develop and utilize stress management and coping techniques

  • Improve self-awareness and healthy strategies for self-expression 

  • Improve functional living skills

  • Decrease disruptive behavior

  • Connect with others in a meaningful way

  • Regulate affect and improve mood


Research indicates using a person’s music preferences during therapy positively impacts the benefits of the therapeutic interventions.  Each board-certified music therapist is trained to provide live music in a variety of styles and genres.



Music therapists may use a variety of instruments, sensory-based items, and visual aids during sessions. Musical skill is not necessary to participate in music therapy. 

Examples of instruments and props include:

  • Guitar  

  • Piano

  • Drums

  • Tone Chimes

  • Shakers

  • Auxiliary percussion

  • Boomwhackers

  • Scarves and ribbon wands

  • Body sock

  • Trampoline

  • Parachute

  • Balls


Music therapy interventions are designed by the music therapist based on the identified goals for each person and/or group. They are implemented during sessions and routinely evaluated for effectiveness. Music is often paired with other strategies that will support successful outcomes. 

Examples of interventions include:

  • Instrument playing

  • Movement to music

  • Song writing

  • Lyric analysis

  • Music-assisted relaxation and progressive muscle relaxation

  • Singing to recorded, live, and original music

  • Call and response interventions
