MUSIC THERAPY (ADULTS):
Music offers a powerful way to communicate and connect for people of all ages and situations, but especially where words may not be possible or available.
Using a range of tuned and untuned instruments that anyone can play, as well as perhaps voice, sounds, improvised and well-known music, music therapy is able to help with physical, emotional, mental, social and cognitive needs.
Music therapists work by developing a trusting therapeutic relationship through musical interactions, listening and music-making and use this shared experience to help clients express and address their therapeutic needs.
Typical sessions last 30-50 minutes and may be 1:1 or in small groups of two, three or up to six people.
MUSIC THERAPY (CHILDREN):
Music therapy offers children a way to connect and express themselves non-verbally in a safe therapeutic space.
Using tuned and untuned instruments that anyone can play, voice, songs, nursery rhymes and music-making, music therapy can help address physical, emotional, mental, social and cognitive needs.
Music therapy might be considered suitable for children with emotional and behaviour needs, trauma experiences, bereavement, family breakdown, developmental considerations, additional learning needs and physical disabilities.
Sometimes, it may be helpful for therapy to be conducted with parent and child or siblings to help with communication and interactions.
Typical sessions last 20-45 minutes and may be 1:1 or in groups.
