“Where Words Fail, Music Speaks”






Music is a fundamental part of being human, as it has the power to connect people in a way that words cannot, crossing all barriers. In M&ST music therapy sessions, instruments and voices are used to help people to communicate in their own musical language whatever their ability, providing emotional, sensory and intellectual stimulation experiences, supporting deepening clients’ ability to listen and experience being listened to, and developing tools with which they communicate.

Every person is unique, and our music therapy sessions are person-centred based and tailored to the client’s needs and interests,  allowing each person to explore the world of sounds in their own unique way. By responding musically, the therapist encourages this process and supports the expression of the person’s individuality, creating an inclusive and supportive environment.

At M&ST we use a variety of music therapy techniques depending on clients'

needs and preferences, such as rhythmic activities, singing, songwriting,

improvisation and many more.

In our practice, we also use electronic music and new technologies applied

to music production, as they offer a wide scope for different forms of

music-making, providing individuals with limited movement the possibility

to create complex musical sounds, often with just a few finger taps.

We offer 1 on 1 and group music therapy sessions in our studio in the

centre of Bristol or in clients’ homes, schools and care homes.

Once completed the initial assessment, therapeutic goals and objectives

are agreed upon between the music therapist and the client/caregiver. Our sessions are typically 30/45 mins of treatment time, depending on the needs of the client on the day, on a weekly basis, with 5/10 minutes for documentation and communication between therapist and client/caregiver/activity coordinators. In some cases, clients may need to attend music therapy for a prolonged period of time, establishing the weekly music therapy session as a positive and supportive routine. During our practice, data are collected to show qualitative and/or quantitative results to reach our clients' goals. The progress of the music therapy is regularly reviewed at agreed intervals.
