What is music therapy?
Music therapy is a specialised type of support for individuals who need help with communication and social skills. It is provided either on a one to one or group basis, by a registered and trained therapist who understands how to help clients with specific needs to make progress.
Is music therapy the same as music lessons?
No, music therapy is very different to music lessons. In music lessons, a learner is taught to master an instrument. This is not the aim of music therapy. Instead, the instruments are simply a means to achieve communication and develop social skills. The clients use a variety of instruments as a way of expressing their feelings and ideas, including responding to other people.
Why is music therapy ideal for day centres?
Day centres have clients with a wide range of physical, emotional and mental needs. Meeting the needs of each individual can be challenging, since no two people are the same. Difficulties in communication can exacerbate the challenge of an already complicated situation. By choosing music therapy for day centres, Aberchirder managers can have the support they need in working with individuals and groups of clients.
What types of people benefit from music therapy for day centres?
A wide range of people in the Aberchirder area can benefit from music therapy. Essentially, anyone who has limited communication or who needs help in developing social skills can benefit from music therapy. For example, some individuals have physical limitations which mean that they are unable to communicate verbally, or can only communicate to a limited degree. Other individuals have the physical capacity to communicate but a restricted vocabulary which makes expressing more complex ideas challenging. Still others can be on the autistic spectrum and find it challenging to express emotions and feelings. These and more are challenges that can be helped with music therapy.
What are the benefits of music therapy for day centres?
The most obvious benefit is that clients have the chance to communicate more freely than they are used to. Some individuals develop communication methods that they can use to share their feelings with people who are around them. As well, individuals learn and develop social skills. For example, music therapy encourages being aware of those in the vicinity, taking turns and listening to others.
