Music has the power to affect us in different ways.  It can be stimulating or soothing; stir our emotions and memories, comfort and inspire. Everyone can respond to music, whatever their health condition.

We use music therapy to help people with a range of conditions including learning disabilities, neurological disorders, life-limiting illness, brain injury, cerebral palsy, mental health issues, trauma, stroke and dementia. Music Therapy uses music to break down barriers caused by illness or disability.
