What do Parents Think About Virtual Developmental Music Therapy Classes?

Feedback regarding the virtual classes has been very positive. Some parents have mentioned that they have been able to make connections with other parents through the virtual music class, and they have continued to engage with each other online outside of class.

One mother described her and her infant's experience:

My son has truly found joy in music through our Zoom classes. He is moving his hands, smiling, paying attention to when the music stops or changes, and even shaking his shaker. It has been such a blessing to attend sessions together and be with our ICN [Intensive Care Nursery] friends during this time of social distancing. We love Ms. Brianna and our music time.
