Music Therapy

WollCon is proud to provide music therapy as part of its music program.

In Music Therapy sessions, music is used to actively support people of all ages to manage their physical and mental health and enhance their quality of life. No prior music experience is needed.

Music therapists use their therapy training and musical ability to facilitate interactive musical experiences to help clients achieve their goals. These goals may include improved communication, cognition, physical function, mood and social engagement.
