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 child’s teacher and together you will fill out a referral form. This is passed on to me and as soon as space opens up I will carry out an assessment.

If you have any questions about music therapy then please do not hesitate to drop me an email on kgerou@carewacademy.org or call the office at 020 8647 8349 to arrange an appointment.

 

 

 

 

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
