What is Individual Music Therapy?

Individual Music Therapy is a regular, one-on-one session with a Registered Music Therapist (RMT), combining music techniques and evidence-based therapeutic activities to achieve individual goals.

We have an exceptional record of delivering on individual goals for participants with a range of additional needs:

  • Physical and intellectual disabilities
  • Early Intervention needs
  • Mental health conditions
  • Speech and language disorders
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Dementia and ageing
  • Family relationship difficulties
  • Stroke and brain injury rehabilitation

Individual sessions create a strong connection and positive engagement between a participant and their RMT, who use live music techniques to guide and improve communication, confidence and outcomes.

Individual Music Therapy sessions are highly interactive, and can include:

  • Singing
  • Playing instruments
  • Dance
  • Songwriting and recording
  • Performing and listening
  • Talking about music.

Noro Individual Music Therapy is available at all our clinics.


Supported Music Lessons

Supported Music Lessons are instrument lessons for individuals with additional needs. Taught by experienced music tutors who have additional teaching skills (and are very patient), students learn technical and theoretical skills on their chosen instrument and will work towards performing, reading, notation, composing and/or improvising.
