Music is good for the soul — and for developing so many other skills. West Side Music Academy works with referrals from psychologists, occupational therapists and other providers to create customized programs that best meets the needs of each student. Music therapy has proven useful to improve social skills, motor skills and cognitive ability. It can help with professional treatment for mental illness and emotional trauma or simply help someone improve the quality of their life. West Side Music Academy welcomes queries from providers to discuss the capabilities of our certified teachers and their programs.
