SEL and Wellness through Therapeutic Music and Enrichment
Making and listening to music can help relieve stress, symptoms of anxiety, help us to self-regulate and feel more connected to others during times of isolation. Our therapeutic music and enrichment programs focus on overall wellness and social emotional learning (especially for children and teens). Using music and expressive arts activities that prompt meaningful conversations, foster personal growth, and create lasting connections between students and group members.
Below are some of our SEL and Wellness programs held both virtually and in-person at our center. For those interested in partnering with us to bring similar programs to your school, residence, day hab, or any other community program, please reach out directly to Nicole at [email protected] so that we can create the most appropriate service plan for your site.

Parent Wellness and Support
Beginning Fall 2020 parents of any children or teens enrolled in any SEC program (including lessons, classes, and music therapy groups) are welcome to join us in our monthly parent wellness groups.
Dates/Time: TBD, meets once per month online
DESCRIPTION: This upcoming school year is going to be different. We will all face new challenges and be expected to adjust to a "new normal" that is so far from our "normal" routines and way of living. We are all in this together and want to share our support in any way we can. Join us each month for an opportunity to share your experiences with others, listen, laugh, cry, whatever you need to take a moment for you. Each group will include some easy stress/relaxation techniques that you can practice the rest of the month.
REGISTRATION: Pre-registration is appreciated each month. We will send you the link when registration is received.
