Music Therapy Center expands to Wayne County

The Trinity Assistance/Blue Ridge Music Therapy Center is proud to announce it will be expanding its program offerings to Wayne County. Located in the Cross Creek Church at 3527 Vienna Street, Palmyra, the Therapeutic Arts Program is an innovative and comprehensive program for special needs individuals ages 21-30.

The two day program is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Private and group lessons will be offered upon request.

Music therapy, an effective and engaging instructional tool, is integrated throughout the day. Classes include academics, social skills, instrument group, creative movement/wellness, prevocational skills, and music therapy. Students are actively involved throughout the day and are responsible for providing their own lunch. Field trips will be scheduled and opportunities to perform and volunteer in the community are being planned.
