What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is different from music education and entertainment as it focuses on health, functioning and wellbeing. Music therapy is the therapeutic application of music and neuroscience on cognitive, motor, and sensory functions and development.
Music therapists use elements of music (beat, rhythm, pitch etc.) plus neuroscience (music’s effect on the brain) to encourage the development of communication, cognition, motor skills, sensory integration and social skills.
At Music Beat Therapy Services, their staff support these outcomes through musical play and a fun activities. Children don’t realise how hard their brains are working because they are too busy playing and having fun!
Benefits of music therapy for kids with disabilities
Music therapy is such a fantastic tool for encouraging a child’s development of important skills in areas such as cognition, communication, movement, sensory integration, and social awareness. For kids with special needs, music therapy can help improve speech and communication, develop fine and gross motor through playing musical instruments, help with social skills development, assist with behaviour management and enhance their social and emotional wellbeing.
