What is the difference between adapted lessons and music therapy?
The primary difference between an adapted lesson and a music therapy session is the content focus. Our music therapy sessions are typically focused on working towards non-musical goal areas such as social, cognitive, and physical development. Our adapted lessons are focused on learning and exploring music.
There is definitely some overlap! For example, a student in a music therapy session will undoubtedly learn about music through the various interventions they participate in, and the student in an adapted lesson will experience growth in a number of non-musical areas as well. The difference is primarily in the focus of the lesson.
