Music Therapy Groups

LIH strives to provide a variety of ongoing small groups to address common areas of need for individuals seeking group services.  When selecting a small group, it is very important to select a group based upon the description, not solely based on when the class is offered.  Each group is designed for individuals with specific areas of need (i.e. beginning social skill development vs. advanced social skill development).

GET STARTED TODAY – It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Directions to submit this packet are included on the bottom of page 1.
Dates, times, & cost can be found on the here.

STEP 2: PAYMENT or SERVICE AUTHORIZATION
Make a private-pay payment or discuss service authorization with a case manager/social worker from a Third-Party Payer program, if applicable (i.e. CCS, CLTS Waiver).

For iLIFE Participants Only: Registering for STOMP 2
Please print and complete the iLIFE Vendor Agreement Form (STOMP 2018) and submit this to your program consultant. 

Please note: Payment or an authorization for services is the only way to hold your spot in the group.  All private-pay and cash-based payments are final.  Also, If you are planning to utilize grant/scholarship funds from a community organization (i.e. CMN, LAF, DSAW) please be sure you are aware of how these grants are paid and who is responsible for the payment to hold the spot in the group.  This information is outlined under the resources tab on our website.

STEP 3: BEGIN!
Join us for the first scheduled day of services.  Don’t forget to click on the Group Music Therapy Schedule to mark the group date/time in your calendar.

Where are small groups held?
Group music therapy services are provided at LIH’s facility and can be organized to be provided within the community or aboard our mobile studio.

What does a “group series” mean?
The groups listed above are provided through a “X-week series” (i.e. 10-week series). This indicates that the group will have a natural starting and stopping point following the x weeks (i.e. 10 weeks).  We utilize the “series” structure to allow new group participants to begin or end services as needed due.  Participants are able to continue services with the next advertised group series, transition to a different group or to individual services, or discontinue services all together.

Payment for Group Music Therapy Services:
Group music therapy services are currently billed per series (series duration may vary). LIH has recently been increasing the frequency of group services; thus, quarterly or annual pre-payment options will soon be available through our “Passport Plan” (more information coming soon).  For individuals with funding sources that require services to be billed per date of service (i.e. CLTS waiver, CCS, Family Care, etc.), LIH requests that social workers/case workers authorize a weekly group music therapy session.  This will be billed following each group session attended by the participant.

Help Us Build A Group!
If you have an idea for a group or class to be offered at Life in Harmony, please contact us to share your ideas.  We would love to create new opportunities for you and others.  We can begin by looking for a “Music Therapy Match“.  For organizations or facilities looking for group music therapy services in the community/on-site, please contact us so we can begin discussing your organization’s vision, mission, goals, and needs.  We specialize in creating interactive music programs that are sure to engage participants of all abilities in live music-making experiences.
