We are pleased to introduce Music Therapy for Children at Best Music Academy. Our music therapy sessions offers the opportunity for children to build better focus, self-control, and social skills.
The music therapy sessions are specifically designed to encourage children to interact with other members of the therapy group by using a wide range of instruments and musical sounds. The unique bond developed with the group members are strengthened with the aid of our qualified therapist.
What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is a creative art therapy that uses music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive and social functioning for participants. Over time, some of the simplest goal are achieved within unexpected moments.
Music therapy can help your child enhance awareness of himself and his surroundings, congenital functions, learning, concentration, and attention span. Our music therapy sessions will also help to develop self-control, develop coping and relaxation skills, emotional personal and social expressions, and resolve personal conflicts. One of our goals is to help your child become more focused, more relaxed, and more sociable.
Our Therapist: Ms. Kanice
After graduating from the University of Hong Kong with degrees in both Music & German, Kanice furthered her music career by returning to the U.K. to complete a M.A. Music Therapy program at Roehampton University.
During her two-year training, Kanice gained experience by working with people with special needs (e.g. autistic spectrum disorder, psychotic depression and learning disabilities), ranging from ages of young children to adults. In September 2015, Kanice became a U.K. registered Music Therapist.
Kanice believes the use of musical improvisation can stimulate imagination, encouraging expressions and enabling the exchanges of a wide variety of emotions. In addition to being Best Music’s Music Therapy specialist, Ms. Kanice is also a violin and piano instructor at our school.
