Music Therapy Group for Persons with Parkinson’s

Music Therapy Group for Persons with Parkinson’s

Remote offering – join anytime. We are excited to offer a special music therapy program to address the needs of Persons with Parkinson’s (PWPs). The program is a series of group sessions, involving 3-5 PWPs and music therapist Monika Gibbons.

The program aims to adapt, as practical, to a PWP’s current musical comfort zone. It provides a safe opportunity to progress musically at a level appropriate to each participant. This program’s objective is therapy using music; other WCMS offerings are available for those PWP’s wishing to supplement their musical experience with more formalized instruction. No musical experience is required. 

Music therapy is an established health care profession that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals of all ages. Music therapy uses music to achieve therapeutic aims. For PWP’s, music therapy has been shown, in research, to improve motor skills, vocal production, and social and emotional health.

The “typical” session includes sharing & support time; vocal and light physical warm-ups; drumming; and group singing (unison).


Tuition has been underwritten by a generous WCMS donor.
