Preparing for music therapy course auditions

I offer private individual tuition to people who wish to undertake a training course in music therapy and who want help in preparing for the practical auditions. In my teaching I draw on my experience as a music therapist, with a focus on developing the student's listening and communication skills, musical imagination, and the confidence to improvise as required during the audition. In my teaching I emphasise the enjoyment of playing with sound and an understanding of how the musical audition relates to the music therapy setting.
