With generous support from the GoPhil Community, Centro Maya’s Music Program uses music, dance, and theater with therapeutic purposes in order to facilitate and promote participants’ communication, interpersonal relationships, learning experience, movement, expression, confidence and joy!
Centro Maya’s Music Program is truly innovative, inclusive and life-changing. Twelve 30-minute music therapy sessions are offered every day, with group activities taking place on Thursdays and Fridays. The music team even travels to Panyebar, a nearby community, once a week for practices and rehearsals. For many of Centro Maya’s beneficiaries with extensive special needs, the music grounds them, challenges them, dramatically improves their mobility and gives them an opportunity to participate in and be a proud member of their community.
