A new offer from our music therapy team to help all access the benefits of music

The world has changed – and so has the way in which we are able to reach and support people through music at the moment.

As the UK’s  largest music therapy charity, our aim is to help people access the benefits of music, especially during these challenging times, and so we have introduced a new offering to help us achieve that mission – Music Conversations.

Musical Conversations Explained

Most of us enjoy talking about what our musical interests with other people, but right now in our current climate, we know that is harder than usual. That’s why we’re offering opportunities to talk about music with one of our music therapists, all of whom are first and foremost musicians who understand the importance of music in everyday life.

Everyone will use these conversations differently: there is no right or wrong way! But in general, we hope they will be an opportunity to share musical interests and to think together about how music can help in coping with the demands of everyday life. We’re also up for sharing new ideas for listening, practicing, learning, or playing.

Unlike counselling or psychotherapy, the conversations won’t address specific personal problems or delve into a person’s psyche. Rather we hope it will enable people to focus on the potential benefits of music, listening to music and making music in the contexts of their own lives.

You don’t need to be knowledgeable about music or be an expert: the conversations simply offer a space in which you can talk about music and its connections to your life. You don’t need to reveal any personal information about yourself unless you want to.

If you think that you, a member of your family, or someone you look after would benefit from having a conversation about music on the phone with one of our therapists, complete the registration form and somebody will be in touch.
