Santa Clarita Music Therapy 

Delivering The Healing Power of Music to Clients Throughout Los Angeles

Music therapy is an increasingly popular form of treatment that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs. Music therapists use music interventions such as singing, songwriting, and playing instruments to help clients achieve their therapeutic goals. It has been proven effective in helping people with a wide range of conditions including depression, anxiety, stress management issues, and even autism spectrum disorder. 

As a professional pianist for over 30 years now, I am passionate about contributing to this growing movement by providing tailored music therapy services designed to meet the individual needs of my clients. By combining piano playing with story-telling and theory instruction techniques drawn from my own experience as a musician, I strive to create an environment where clients can relax and express themselves creatively while also working towards achieving their desired outcomes. 

If you're interested in exploring how music therapy can help you or a loved one, please call (661) 241-9635 or send me a message online. I'm dedicated to helping my clients reach their therapeutic goals and look forward to the opportunity of working with you.

The Healing Benefits of Piano Music

As a pianist, I have experienced firsthand the healing power of music. The piano has long been viewed as a, no pun intended, instrumental tool in music therapy, providing comfort and relief to both children and adults struggling with emotional, physical, and psychological issues. By utilizing my skills on the piano, I can provide powerful therapeutic experiences that can bring about positive change in individuals’ lives. 

Some of the benefits that can be achieved through music therapy include:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved mood and emotional well-being
  • Enhanced communication and social skills
  • Increased motivation and focus
  • Pain and symptom management
  • Improved motor skills and coordination

Musical therapy is beneficial for individuals from all walks of life. It can be particularly effective for children with learning or developmental disabilities, individuals with mental health conditions, seniors experiencing memory loss or cognitive decline, or patients recovering from surgery or going through rehabilitation. 

My Approach

My approach to music therapy is centered around providing a safe and non-judgmental environment where clients can feel comfortable exploring their inner selves through the power of music. I view each session as an opportunity for discovery, enabling my clients to gain insights into their unique needs and how they can be addressed through creative expression.

During our sessions, I may use techniques such as:

  • Singing
  • Playing instruments
  • Musical improvisation
  • Guided relaxation exercises
  • Visual imagery

Other activities include songwriting and lyric analysis which allows me to identify themes that may be impacting a client’s emotions and behaviors. Additionally, I provide theoretical instruction on rhythm and melody so that clients can better understand the structure of the music they are creating or listening to during sessions.
