Music Therapy Center Curaçao

Welcome to Music Therapy Center Curaçao. MTCC offers you information, treatment and products in Music Therapy at Curaçao and the Caribbean area.

Words can not always express what we want to say... Music is a language without words. In music we can communicate and express ourselfs. Music Therapy is a evidence based treatment. Together with the therapist you will explore different music instruments, make music or listen to music. Music therapy is appropriate for everybody and all ages. Music therapy is offered to individuals and groups. The main goal is to accomplish change, improvement, on psychological, social and physical needs. Music Therapy Center Curaçao stands as a center for quality and professionalism. We also offer Life Coaching, Consultancy, Workshops and Trainings. We are situated at Prinsenlaan Curaçao in the building of Neuropsychology Practice Minds Matter. For more information: [email protected] Phone: +5999 8695255 / +5999 5296127

Sometimes we #make #it #happen...we often have more to do than we can possibly do, but we just need to feel good about our choices (David Allen). Well, this was a good choice. It wasn't easy. But now, with this course, Music Therapy can be better understood and interventions more specific, for diseases in neurological area such like brain damage, Parkinson, Dementia, child development. Thank you Leticia and Camilla Pfeiffer from -Red Iberoamericana de Musicoterapia y Neurociencias
