In music therapy, you can improvise music on a range of different musical instruments. You can sing, write a song, or learn to play a favourite tune. You can also just listen to music to relax and to evoke memories. For some people, music can be something that helps them to feel energised and alive.

In music, we can be playful, expressive and adventurous, even in times of illness or sadness. This can ease difficulties faced, or give a new experience of yourself.

Music can put us very deeply in touch with feelings and emotions, and it can also offer companionship, support and intimacy: a different way of 'being together' with another person, or other people.
