Who Benefits

The development of a relationship between client and therapist is central in our therapeutical approach. This is facilitated through shared music-making which encourages communication and emotional empathy through a creative exploration of sounds, rhythms, melodies and harmonies.

In a music therapy session, interactive improvisation, structured activity, composition, singing and playing are used to help people to communicate in their own musical language whatever their ability, promoting also socialisation and engagement. Our aim and privilege at Music & Sound Therapy are trying to reach everyone through music, supporting unique forms of expression and unlocking creativity. We offer multiple music therapy approaches to improve the quality of life for older people with dementia, adults and children.
