Group Therapy

All therapy groups are facilitated by a Board Certified Music Therapist, or Art Therapist in the case of the art therapy based groups, who is trained to create a friendly, nurturing environment for the participants in order to encourage growth in various skill areas. Each group offers a safe and supportive environment designed to highlight each individual's unique, creative strengths and abilities.


Group Music Therapy (all ages)

Please consult our calendar for available groups

Our music therapy socialization groups will be facilitated by a board certified music therapist (MT-BC) familiar with the concepts of the DIR/Floortime model as well as sensory integrative techniques. The sessions will be comprised of no more than 6 children based on age and needs.


Handchime Choirs

Young Ringers (ages 7-12)
Joyful Ringers (ages 13+)>

Our handchime choirs consist of up to 12 members. These groups ring recognizable music using Schulmerich tone chimes. Unlike an orchestra or choir in which each musician is responsible for one line of the music, a handchime ensemble acts as one instrument, with each musician responsible for particular notes, sounding his or her assigned bells whenever that note occurs.

Therapeutic benefits include social interaction, cognitive benefits, and physical benefits. The handchime choir will also provide an outlet for emotional and music expression. The students will learn to contribute to the group as a whole. No prior musical experience or ability to read music is required. Requirements:


Music Together Within Therapy® Groups

Tempo! is also offering classes designed for families with children with special needs who feel they need more support in a smaller class environment. These classes will be tailored to the specific therapeutic needs (physical, emotional, cognitive, and social) of each child. Also, contrary to typical Music Together classes, children over the age of 6 are welcome.


Zumba® (ages 5-12) (inclusive - for children with special needs and their peers)

The Zumba® Kids program is the ultimate dance-fitness party for young Zumba® fans ages 5-12, where they can play it loud and rock with friends to their own rules! This program features age-appropriate music and moves that get kids movin' to the beat. It's all about feeling fearless on the dance floor, reinforcing the idea that it's okay to just be yourself and dance like no one's watching! All classes will be adapted to fit the needs of the students in the class.
