Music Therapy

Music Therapy is a professional discipline that uses music to achieve therapeutic aims. The music therapy practice is set in a safe and nurturing environment which allows the child to learn and share freely.

Music therapy uses music and engagement to address a variety of objectives, including stimulation, self-express, motivation, communication, promote social interaction, improve speech as well as sensory-motor skills; the therapist taking into account individuals and groups' abilities and needs when developing the music therapy program. Children in the program may participate in a range of musical applications such as: improvisation, instrument playing, singing or vocalising, music and movement, listening, and performance. Music can provide a sense of independence and individuality, and through active participation, music therapy can assist the participants in their growth and development.  (AMTA 2011)
