Weekly Music Therapy at Manchester's Regional Day School Really Sings!
Each week, Hannah from Mosaic Music Therapy visits Regional Day School students for fun, engaging and beneficial music therapy sessions.
"Music Therapy has had a positively profound effect on our students" says Lisa Michallis, Principal of Regional Day School. "Although our teachers are always exposing students to rhythms, basic hand-held instruments and various genres of music, the addition of Ms. Hannah's techniques brings the students joy and confidence in a different way."
Music Therapy has been proven to increase social, cognitive, communication, fine and gross motor skills as well as improve the mental and physical health of individuals with special needs. It is fun, engaging, stimulates the brain and brings people together. Music Therapy is not only promoting music and movement, but it also promotes language, exposes students to different cultures and customs, some classes are even able to write music and perform for the staff and their families. The students at Regional Day School love their Music Therapy and the school is proud to bring this experience to their students.
