During sessions, people are encouraged to take an active part by either playing improvised music, singing or listening to favourite songs, or writing and recording own music.
People do not require particular skills to participate in music therapy. Rather, everyone is encouraged to use accessible percussion and other instruments and their own voices to explore the world of sound and to create a musical language of their own.
Whichever form music therapy takes, in individual or group setting, the music therapist aims to facilitate positive changes in emotional, physical and social well-being. People are helped to develop an increased sense of self-awareness and awareness of others, self-confidence, expression and communication, and thereby to enhance their quality of life.
