Music Therapy

What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy uses music as a tool for self- expression and communication. Sometimes people believe that it is a music lesson or a meditation/relaxation course.

Music therapy is about making verbally and/or non-verbally connections through music that may have a positive impact on:

– developing self-esteem and confidence

– discovering a sense of identity

– improving communication and social skills

– providing opportunities to feel connected

You don’t need to know how to play an instrument to access music therapy, as there is no right or wrong way to play music. The music is generally improvised and we have a specially set up room with a range of easily accessible instruments.

 

Why Music?

Most people like music and, as such, it can be an incredibly powerful therapeutic tool. Sometimes there are things that are hard or painful to talk about directly; by establishing a therapeutic relationship and using music, we can reveal and work with the emotions behind worries or challenging behaviors within a safe environment.

Music Therapy is also recommended under the NICE guidelines as an effective therapy for ASD pupils.

 

Referral

Speak to your son/daughter’s teacher and together you will fill out a referral form. This is passed on to the therapy team for an initial assessment.

If you have any questions about Music Therapy then please contact the school office on 020 8647 8349 to arrange an appointment.

Our Music Therapist is employed directly by Carew Academy.

 

 

 

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
