Creating Healthy, Vibrant, & Sound Communities Through Community Music Groups
Healthy communities are important to the long-term health of society. And there are many different ways to do this. One of these ways is by bringing the healing and transformative power of music to the greater community.
This is because creativity is important to being human. Because of this, we all deserve opportunities to create and express ourselves in ways that also help us feel good. As well, we’re social creatures and we need opportunities to feel good with others. Making music as part of a group helps meet both of these needs.
And this is where SoundWell Music Therapy comes in. SoundWell Music Therapy specializes in offering community music therapy groups promoting mental health and well-being of people of all ages. Knowing that not everyone needs, nor can afford individual therapy, community music therapy groups are provided throughout Longmont and Boulder County communities.
Working With Community and Non-Profit Organizations in the Area
To do this, SoundWell Music Therapy works in partnership with community organizations such as:
- Early Childhood Education/Childcare Programs
- Healthcare Companies
- Mental Health Centers
- Social Service Agencies
SoundWell Music Therapy designs groups to address the unique needs of those served by the organizations. This means that no two groups are exactly the same, even if the goals of the group are similar.
Examples of groups SoundWell Music Therapy currently offers include:
- Parent and Child Music Groups brings together parents or caregivers and their young children in order to make music and to engage in fun movement activities. Such groups foster children’s development, while also strengthening bonding and attachment between parent and child.
- In-School Groups are offered to school special education programs looking for ways to support the diverse needs of their students. Music is used in these groups to help students develop skills such as self-regulation, attention, focus, and emotional intelligence.
- Memory Care Groups are available to long-term and memory care communities who want to provide
meaningfuland engaging enrichment activities to their residents.
