This program has evolved from a dream and desire to blend the values of music with the participation of daily activity. Occupational therapy is a profession designed to support health and participation in life through engagement in occupation. The goal is to provide opportunity to engage in meaningful, everyday activities that the individual both wants and needs to do. Musical activities, similar to music therapy, are activities that incorporate the use of music in many forms, including playing, listening to and creating music. Additionally, many musical components, such as rhythms, beat, tone, pitch, and volume, can be utilized within a musical activity.
