MusicWorx Toolbox: Successful Approaches for Older Adults With Varying Abilities
By: Melissa Wargo-Geesen, MT–BC

The MusicWorx Toolbox course Group Music Therapy Interventions Successful Approaches for Older Adults with Varying Abilities is ideal for working in an older adult setting. But the ideas are adaptable to fit almost any population, helping clients achieve cognitive, sensorimotor, speech and language, social, and emotional goals. These intervention ideas are thorough enough that music therapists may replicate them exactly to create successful therapeutic sessions. But they also may incorporate any therapist's unique artistic interpretation.
