Music is vital to well-being
Music therapy can unlock potential
Whoever we are or whatever we do in our everyday lives, we are all consciously and subconsciously exposed to music and the power it holds.
Music is innately rooted in us - we are all musicians, the trained perform but we all music. It never rests even to our last breath. The elements of music connect with us innately because they ‘force’ the whole of the brain to work, and they meet everything we do being
Although uniquely different beings, we all have in common a pulse...energy...sound...tempo... and are drawn to certain styles of music. Our brain connections are unique, our tastes are too. What if our brains aren’t very well, because of pathology, physical trauma, mental trauma, depression, stress, addiction, dementia?
The craft of a music therapist can aid development, unlock potential and support healing in many ways on the journey from birth to end of life.
