Music therapy can help many people from all walks of life. The people who benefit the most from this program are those who wish to improve physical, cognitive and speech development. This can include those with a stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and more.
Music therapy is used to actively support you to manage your physical and mental health, improve speech and communication skills, and improve your coordination and memory. Some of the activities can include singing, writing song lyrics or playing instruments with the assistance of our trained and registered music therapists. Achieve your rehab goals and have fun along with the way with music therapy.
Music therapy involves such tasks as listening to music played by our specialised music therapists, making music by playing instruments or singing and writing song lyrics. All beginners are welcome and encouraged to partake!
Your music therapist has specialised training and experience in using music as the medium to aid the rehabilitation process. Musical interventions are focused on physical and psychological goals, mutual to the treating team. An open group environment encourages patients to interact with one another and share their experiences of the rehabilitation process thus far, while individual sessions are centred on achieving specific goals.
Depending on your rehab needs and goals, music therapy may be complemented by a number of other disciplines including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, hydrotherapy, exercise physiology, speech pathology, dietetics and more.
Your music therapist together with your multidisciplinary team will regularly review your progress and in collaboration with you, update your program as required.
