Music therapy is a profession where music is used to support people to reach their health and wellbeing goals. Registered music therapists (RMTs) are allied health professionals and highly skilled musicians with tertiary qualifications in the provision of music therapy services. Music therapists work in partnership with individuals, families and communities to listen to their interests and concerns and identify ways in which music can be a resource for initiating and fostering change. Therapeutic interventions are supported by evidence and are based in peer-reviewed research and established theoretical frameworks.

Music therapy can involve a range of musical experiences including, listening to music, writing songs, playing instruments, creating playlists and performing and organising community music events.

Music Therapy for Children

Music often brings great pleasure to young children and it can be a motivating way to enjoy interactions with others and learn new skills. Music therapy offers a fun and encouraging environment for children to increase their social communication, optimise development and enhance self-regulation in a way that the entire family can enjoy.

Music Therapy for Adults

Music allows people and communities to engage, interact and build positive relationships. Through participation in music therapy, people with a disability can build on their interest in music therapy to address personal goals, such as mood regulation, social interaction, communication skills and community engagement. Our music therapist focuses on creativity and offering participants an environment centred on their needs and interests.
