Safety during the Covid-19 pandemic

Music therapy uses clinical and evidence-based music interventions to accomplish individualised therapeutic goals, helping with physical, emotional and psychological well-being in people of all ages. 

Qualified music therapists use music to communicate with an individual or a group, developing their strengths and/or working on their specific needs. Functional outcomes may impact on an individual’s movements and their ability to communicate, as well as on their mood, behaviour and general development. Music therapy can be beneficial for everyone, whether or not they have additional needs, from babies in the womb to individuals at the end of life.
