Music Therapy

What is Music Therapy?

All human beings are able to respond to music regardless of musical ability. It is upon this basis that Music Therapy is formulated.

Children receiving Music Therapy in SchoolMusic Therapy In School

By using the creativity which lies at the heart of musical expression, the therapist is able to develop a therapeutic relationship with the child through improvisation and communication using sounds, harmonies and rhythms.

These aspects of music can often mimic those found in language, and can act as the basis for a new form of creative communication in which there is no need for linguistic fluency.

This function of Music Therapy affords an avenue of creative expression for those children who need to communicate without the use of words.
