Music Therapist

Matthew Danser, MA, MT-BC is a board-certified music therapist who has been practicing in the field for over 10 years. Matt provides treatment to the individuals we serve through clinical improvisation, songwriting, and recreative and receptive music-based interventions. He is proud of the program he built years ago and his vision for Music Therapy at Bancroft NeuroRehab. Music therapy is now under the umbrella of Cognitive Rehabilitation and is enhanced by its strategies and evidence-based practice. Matt’s mission is to meet individuals where they are, showing them how music can be used to achieve goals related to initiation, communication, executive functioning, emotional regulation, and beyond. Previously, Matt worked in the mental health field, where he learned how much of an impact mental health and trauma have on one’s well-being. Matt looks forward to advocating for music and creative arts in neurorehabilitation to benefit future individuals at Bancroft.
