InTandem Music Therapy believes in fee transparency. By listing fees outright, we aim to demystify the general costs associated with music therapy. Below is a table of the service costs. All costs have been considered using guidelines provided by the Music Therapy Association of BC, which can be found by clicking here. Please note that Service Costs are subject to change in September of each year at a reasonable rate. These current fees have been approved for September 2021 and will be re-assessed in September 2022. For questions about funding, you can click here.
