Music Therapy 


Warwickshire County Music Service provide Music Therapy in school. 
We have a music therapist come into school to work with pupils with complex needs. She comes in once a week on a Friday.  

Music Therapy is a therapeutic treatment with the use of music as the non-verbal intervention. It is based on improvised music in which the children can express themselves, become aware of their feelings and interact more easily. 

The aims of Music Therapy include: 

  • Increasing communication, interaction and self expression 

  • Developing an awareness of self and others 

  • Providing emotional support 

  • Developing listening skills, sharing and taking turns 

  • Developing co-ordination and motor control 

  • Increasing self confidence 

  • Building trust and meaningful relationships
