“Before my daughter had music therapy, she was often locked away in her own world. Music therapy was the key that fitted the lock.”

More About Training

We provide training sessions to help people use music in other settings. These sessions give the opportunity to explore the instruments, try out some simple games and build confidence. You do not need musical skills – just curiosity and a willingness to have a go!

Training we have offered:

  • Making the most of your music groups: Introduction to exploring musical instruments and simple activities – 1.5-2 hours

  • Developing skills for using music in mother-toddler groups, with insights from parent-infant interaction – 1 day

However, if you have something particular in mind, do ask!
