What We Do

OKMT provides music therapy and projects for people of all ages with physical, learning, neurological or psychological difficulties in the London Borough of Richmond and surrounding areas, in order to improve their well-being and quality of life. As well as individual music therapy sessions, we run several community groups – OK Music Club for children with disabilities at local charity, Skylarks; OK Music School, teaching children and young people with additional needs to play instruments and perform in public; OK Youth Choir for children and young people of all abilities; music therapy groups for adults with neurological conditions or mental health problems, and OK Music Harmony groups for elderly people.


Music therapy - OKMT

The Power of Music

Music touches our emotions deeply and music therapy can enable those who find it hard to communicate through traditional methods to express themselves. It has a remarkable ability to enhance communication, social interaction and emotional well-being for a wide range of people. We are dedicated to making a difference to some of society’s most vulnerable people, from children with additional needs to elderly people with dementia, by helping them to communicate, gain confidence, make friends, and take part with pride in community activities.

“It has been a really profound experience to express my feelings through music”
