Welcome to HarmonizED: Music Therapy!
HarmonizED is our free music therapy program. Music therapy is a research-based and systematized approach to therapy that utilizes the powerful connection between music and the soul to foster growth, insight, and healing. Music offers us an alternative way of expressing ourselves, often in a way that words simply cannot. Note that there is no prior musical experience required in music therapy; this is not a music lesson or performance seminar! This is an environment where mistakes are encouraged and embraced. We approach music not from a professional and judgmental standpoint, but with a fresh perspective of openness to get back to the foundations of creativity. HarmonizED, explores music in a variety of ways, a few of which include examining and discussing song lyrics to obtain ideas and lessons, practicing group songwriting as a means of self-empowerment, engaging in creative improvisation to promote freedom and self-acceptance, and using movement and song to strengthen self-esteem and grow self-love.
This group is intended for adult females and males (ages 18+).
