What We Do
OKMT provides music therapy and projects for people of all ages with physical, learning, neurological or psychological difficulties in the 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; Choirs for children and young people of all abilities; Groups for adults with mental health problems, and OK Music Harmony groups for elderly people.
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.
