L is in her 50s and moved into sheltered housing four years ago. Her mother died six months before the start of the pandemic and L became increasingly housebound, isolated, scared and confused. L has always had a love of music and has enjoyed singing in choirs since she was a child. OKMT provides music therapy in her home and Carmem, her music therapist, is helping L rediscover her love of music, and building up her confidence. Singing makes her feel elated and joyful, she is happier, more able to enjoy her life, feels more connected to the outside world and is building up the courage to get out and about again.
G is a 9 year old boy who suffers stress and anxiety leading to defiant behaviour due to early traumatic events. At the music therapy sessions, he was able to make connections between music and emotions and gradually became confident to express himself freely. He used song-writing to explore more “scary” feelings and events. He is motivated and proud of what he has written and school staff reported he is in better form on days when he has music therapy.
