Music Therapy with Adults
Music can offer something different. Different, non-pressured, enjoyable and motivating yet can be used to explore challenges and bring positive sparks.
For adults experiencing mental health conditions music can break isolation, provide a flexible, accessible platform for positive experiences and interactions and for developing self-expression and self-reflection.
For adults working on physical development, making music on a range of instruments specifically chosen to address their needs is an engaging, non-pressured, highly motivating way to facilitate development of fine and gross motor skills, coordination, breathing, vocal function and more.
For those experiencing or having experienced trauma, loss, grief, illness, music can be drawn upon with sensitivity to acknowledge, support, reminisce, and accept towards finding a way forward.
Social and emotional needs can also be met through group settings, using music-making opportunities to engage in and develop interactions and abilities to relate to others.
