Introduction

Music therapy is not about learning to sing or play an instrument.

In a Music Therapy session, you might:

  • Listen to music
  • Move to music
  • Sing
  • Make music with simple instruments
  • Write and discuss song lyrics
  • Use Guided Imagery with music

Music therapists work alongside other healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, speech therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists.

They may work with adults and children who have:

  • Symptoms caused by physical illness or mental illness
  • Side effects from cancer and its treatment
  • A terminal illness such as cancer
