In fulfilling our mission statement, “To Enrich People`s Lives Through Participation In Music”, we dedicate ourselves to the belief that all lives can be enhanced through the active involvement and participation in music.
Music Therapy is a health-care discipline that uses music to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages. The methods used in music therapy improve the quality of life for persons who are well and meet the needs of children and adults with disabilities or illnesses. Music Therapy interventions can be designed to promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, enhance memory, improve communication, and promote physical rehabilitation.
Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory established its Music Therapy program in 2014 and since has served a variety of populations throughout the Sacramento Valley Region, providing services personalized to our clients` unique needs. Our team of seven board-certified music therapists lead music therapy in groups and one-on-one settings. By adopting a process instead of a product philosophy, their focus becomes more involved in creating, moving, and listening to music rather than the product of learning music for performance.
