These techniques are used to work towards goal areas of teamwork, expressive communication, self-esteem and confidence, abstract thinking, and overall quality of life. Other non-music therapy techniques include arranging and beatboxing/vocal percussion. (Pre-requisites: verbal and basic reading.)
Paige Zilba is a graduate of Baldwin Wallace University, class of 2016, with a Bachelors of Music in music therapy. While in her undergrad, she created, directed, arranged, and beatboxed within her a cappella group, SŌL. In the summer of 2015, she had the opportunity to attend A Cappella Academy and work one on one with grammy award winning arranger, Ben Bram. Within music therapy, she has completed three pre-internship experiences with various populations, as well as an eight month music therapy internship. Paige created Aca-Therapy to combine her passions for music therapy and a cappella!
