Music Therapy Protocols Overview

 

The Beamz Music Therapy Protocols comprise a collection of five “progressive” neurologic-based music therapy protocols with three client intervention use levels and two “stand alone” music therapy protocols for broad client use. The protocols were developed with MusicWorx for use with the Beamz Professional Edition Interactive Music System for both individual and group sessions to accomplish a range of therapy goals, including cognitivesensorimotor and general health and wellness. Internal interventions and evaluation tools are included in each of the protocols.

Music Therapy Protocols Structure

 

The protocols are designed for music therapists to facilitate neurologic-based music therapy sessions and general health and wellness therapy sessions with the Beamz Interactive controller. Within the “progressive” protocols there are three levels of intervention to assess various levels of functioning and ability of clients. The A sections- “Foundational Exercises” serve as warm-up interventions, wherein, if the clients are able to complete these basic functional tasks, they move on to the B Sections- “Intermediate Performance”, which increases in task demand and difficulty; success is determined by the completion of the A Section and the interventions are based from A Sections. If the clients are able to successfully complete B Section interventions, they move on to Sections C, “Expert Performance”, which is the final level of the protocol. Although the segments of protocols are progressive and can be used as a foundation for the next, they can also be used independently, if music therapist assesses that it is appropriate for the clients.
