What exactly is music therapy?
If you’ve never attended a music therapy session before, you might be wondering what music therapy is, and what kinds of benefits it offers. Music therapy is a means of using music as a means of opening channels of communication and encouraging people to express themselves using musical instruments and sound. Music therapy is not designed to teach adults or children how to play instruments. Instead, it facilitates communication and interaction, and enables individuals to use a musical language to show how they’re feeling and to form bonds with others.

Our music therapy services
At Grampian Music Therapy, we provide an extensive range of music therapy services in Aberdeenshire. We offer one-to-one and group sessions for all age groups, and we work with local hospitals, health centres, care homes, schools, day centres and private clients. We can tailor music therapy to suit the individual or the needs of the group, and we use different approaches to encourage creativity and development through music. If you’re looking for music therapy in Aberdeenshire, we’re confident we can come up with a solution based on your requirements and your preferences.

Who can benefit from music therapy?
Music therapy can be hugely beneficial for a broad spectrum of individuals. This form of therapy is often recommended for adults and children who have sensory needs and those facing social isolation. Music therapy has been proven to help those with communication difficulties and low levels of self-confidence, and it can also be an effective communication channel for individuals on the autistic spectrum. At Grampian Music Therapy, we work with adults and children, building self-esteem and providing an opportunity for individuals or groups to open up, interact and communicate using music as a language.

We recommend one-to-one sessions for clients who have a limited vocabulary and difficulty related to speaking and communicating with others, and we also find that individual sessions can help to improve visual and audio awareness, improve focus and concentration and encourage individuality and confidence. Group sessions can be beneficial for clients who find it difficult to form friendships and to interact with peers, as well as those who lack confidence.
