Community Music School
MSU's Community Music School established the Music Therapy Clinical Services to provide music therapy treatment for special-needs clients in the Greater Lansing community. Special needs that are often effectively treated by music therapy techniques are those typically arising from medical illnesses, handicapping conditions (such as developmental disabilities and physical impairments), specific learning disabilities, and aging. Services are offered in individual or group settings, as appropriate for the client's needs and abilities.
