About Music Therapy

Music Therapy

Music Therapy is an evidence based use of musical interventions which are used to accomplish and/or support goals that an individual seeks to achieve. Goals can include the following: building attention, improving communication and creative self-expression to name a few. 

 

Sessions are carried out by qualified and trained music therapists who assess and plan the use of musical interventions (e.g. singing, musical improvisation) to support the development of the client.  No prior musical experience or training is required in a music therapy session.

Nordoff-Robbins Creative Music Therapy

Music therapy at Rejoice Creative Music is heavily influenced by the  "Nordoff-Robbins Creative Music Therapy" (NRCMT). This approach is built upon the work by co-founders Dr Clive Robbins ( special educator) and Dr Paul Nordoff (composer)  in the 1960s. 

NRCMT functions on the premise that every individual has an innate musical sensitivity that enables him/her to respond to music, regardless of pathology.
