Dominique Piqugard, MTA, owner of UB Music-que Therapy Services, has been studying music and the voice for over 25 years. After life changing childhood experiences, her love of singing, playing piano, and song-writing lead her to use music for grounding and reframing her life experiences through the creative exploration She became drawn to sing in choirs as a child since 8 years old and took years of voice and piano lessons growing up. She was drawn to using music for more than just entertainment. It has become a grounding tool and creative means to explore and express her inner world through rhythm, metaphor, melody, and harmony.
She studied Jazz and Classical voice in Montreal with private voice teachers, then through Vanier College, followed by her BFA at York University, which focused her studies on vocal cultures from around the world. In 2014, she pursued a Graduate Certificate in Music Therapy from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, and took her certification exam from the Certified Board of Music Therapists (CBMT) in November of 2015.
Dominique is a certified music therapist (*MTA) in Moncton, New Brunswick, with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (CAMT) as well as with it’s Atlantic branch, the Atlantic Association of Music Therapy (AAMT). Dominique Piqugard’s continued education includes a certification in Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) she received in May 2016 as well as CAMT annual conference courses in the clinical use of music improvisation.
She is a team of one for now, and hopes to bring more quality music therapy services and therapists to South-Eastern New-Brunswick.
