The CDs can be played over any sound system to accompany activities in you clinic, or as background music to create a playful ambience.
Some CDs contain instrumentals, some include vocals, and all songs are performed by top musicians and infused with inviting rhythms and improvisations.
These CDs contain the same songs as our Therapeutic Listening® modified CDs, but the music has not been modified or electronically altered in any way.
Music is engaging and fun for children of all ages.
