wigglegrow_petparade_logo_musicclassesfortoddlers_kindermusik-1100x109
Gather your critters! Its time for pet themed fun as we sing, dance, play instruments, and share the experiences of the love that animals bring into our lives. We’ll gallop like horses, scamper like mice, and fly like birds as we develop our motor skills, vocabulary, recall, imagination and so much more. Get ready to meow, neigh, woof and squeak along as we all join in the pet parade.

World Autism Awareness Day

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness day. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that is a result of a neurological disorder. Many children with Autism have impairments in social interactions, verbal and nonverbal communications and experience restricted repetitive behaviours and interests.

Music Therapy is an effective way to break the verbal barriers that challenge those with Autism. Music is nonverbal and nonthreatening and can be used to facilitate certain behavioural, verbal and social goals. Many people with Autism show signs of musical inclination through perfect pitch and musicality which music therapists use to gain a verbal or nonverbal connection.

March is Music Therapy Month

March is Music Therapy Month! Music Therapy is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain and restore mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual health (adapted from the CAMT).

At ‘Harmony Is’ we have a team of three music therapists who provide individual and group music therapy programs at our Milton studio and throughout the Halton and Peel regions. Our music therapists provide services to Long Term Care Facilities, Adult Group Homes, Community Living Day Programs, Palliative/Respite Care Programs and in School Classrooms. We also provide Speech Supported Music therapy (individual and group) under the supervision of a Speech/Language Pathologist.

To celebrate Music Therapy Month Music therapists from all over Canada will be marching in or around their hometowns to raise awareness and support for music therapy. Our team of Music Therapists and other Music Therapists in the GTA will be participating in the March for Music Therapy in Burlington Ontario. This is an open event on Sunday March 29th from 2:00-5:30 pm starting at the Beaver and Bulldog in Burlington. For two kilometers we will be marching to the beat of many drums, then joining together at the Beaver and Bulldog pub for live music, snacks and raffles. If you are interested in joining please register online through https://www.events.runningroom.com/site/?raceId=11741.

Hope to see you there 🙂
