Music Therapy is delivered by Registered Music Therapists (RMTs) trained at university to understand how music can have an effect on behaviours, on how people feel and how people think.
In a music therapy session people might sing, play instruments, dance, write their own songs and record them, perform, listen and talk about music. Behind all of these activities are objectives and goals that are working towards helping to improve a person’s health, functioning and wellbeing. Therapy plans and measurable goals are used to track how effective the therapy is for the participant.
Music for skills: learn skills, like communication skills, motor skills and social skills through music-making that translate in daily life.
Music for confidence: Practice music and understand yourself as a musical person, so you can confidently participate in community and
mainstream music activities.
Music for wellbeing: Learn ways to use music for yourself, in your home and with your family for improved connection and wellbeing.
