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”
