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.
Music Therapy uses music to break down barriers of illness or disability. The people who we help are all ages and have a range of complex conditions including learning disabilities, autism, life-limiting illness, brain injury, cerebral palsy, mental health issues, stroke and dementia.
