Telehealth Music Therapy Sessions

Telehealth Music Therapy Sessions

Music therapy online! We'll meet on Zoom and make music together, just like we would in person. This is ideal if you cannot accept visitors in your home, or if you are located outside the Kansas City/Topeka metro area.

Music Lessons for Adults

Music lessons in the Kansas City & Topeka area

Have you always wanted to play a piano or guitar, but never had time? Maybe that time is now!

We travel to your home for private music lessons that are specially tailored for adults. The goal is to have fun and learn something new, not to win a scholarship or a competition.

“Music therapy is able to touch a place of remembering, comfort and joy that few other modalities access. It is invaluable support for enhancing quality of life for patients.”

Adrienne

“This was great for the older crowd – remembering old memories and combining songs with personal stories. My grandma was relaxed and in really good spirits.”

Carey, Daughter

“For many families, no matter how others around are trying to get back to normal, their own normal is going to look quite different for a very long time, whether that’s the loss of in-person visits in nursing homes, outpatient therapies, or things like day services.

My family connected with telehealth services through Soundscaping Source. They have experience with conditions like Parkinson’s, and typically have done in-person sessions in homes or nursing homes, but the change to telehealth has been SO helpful for our family, and has been another touchpoint for interaction with my parents in this new reality.

For others who may be missing their routines, their services, and juggle health challenges, I really recommend this type of option.

Carey, daughter of teletherapy client

Amy Goodman-Long

“I have known patients who have lost most of their ability to communicate. By using music therapy they are offered an opportunity for connection and to express their emotions. During end of life this can be an invaluable tool for closure and reducing anxiety.”
