About Us

20150717_AMT_QuoteKidsUnder Musical Construction and Atlanta Music Therapy use the power of MUSIC as their therapeutic tool to inspire, encourage, and assist individuals in accomplishing their goals.  When used as a methodical and scientifically sound tool, MUSIC provides a comforting, safe, and judgement-free environment for individuals to facilitate joy, and benefit from the release of tiring stressors of everyday life. Working with varying populations- children to geriatrics, and trained in a multitude of musical genres and therapeutic modalities; the possibilities of what can be achieved through music are endless.

  • An environment that promotes positive relationships and self-esteem.
  • A planned curriculum that fosters all aspects of a young child’s development: cognitive, emotional, language, physical, and social.
  • Approaches teaching as a developmentally sound, and linguistically appropriate experience, where cultural differences, and individual abilities are praised and encouraged.
  • Is accountable for the ongoing progress of each participating child, and communicates this to the school staff and parents.
  • Leads activities in a manner in which safety and well-being are always part of the tasks at-hand.
  • Employs a teaching staff that excel in educational qualifications, where knowledge of the world of music, and an understanding of child development is the professional commitment necessary to promote and support these young learners.
