Redwoods Music Therapy
We provide music therapy for Redwoods clients and non-Redwoods clients, and offer a service to suit a wide variety of different needs. This can be in our own purpose-built facility or elsewhere.
What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is a HCPC registered therapy which involves the use of music as therapy. It is interactive, and usually involves the client(s) and therapist playing instruments and/or singing together. No musical experience is required at all, and there is no minimum level of ability needed – anyone can join in with music therapy.
The aims and outcomes of music therapy depend entirely on the needs and wishes of the client. Sessions may focus on developing communication skills, encouraging engagement with others or with music, play, relaxation, decreasing anxiety, amongst other things.
Music therapy can involve:
– Playing instruments together
– Improvising music freely
– Playing and singing songs together
– Playing musical games
