Music therapy can affect the whole individual, but it cannot be guaranteed to make the individual 'whole'; a number of conditions may be irreversible. In some instances, music therapy can monitor deterioration, while acting as a healing agent in others.
At the moment, BAMT is unable to fund music therapy sessions. However, this might be something we can consider funding in the future as the charity grows and develops.

Music therapy is not a substitute for music lessons. Clients will often acquire certain musical skills in the course of a music therapy programme, such as sensitivity to pitch, rhythmic control, and awareness of form. These skills, whilst constituting an important part of the therapy programme, are likely to be secondary to pre-determined therapeutic objectives.
If you need to contact a music therapist to arrange music therapy sessions, please see our Find a Therapist page. If you are an organisation wishing to advertise a music therapy post, please contact our Admin Team email@example.com
