Our Mission: the development and use of music therapy, as a means to relieve those living in conditions of need, hardship or distress, suffering from mental or physical disability and the effects of poverty or sickness.

Music as Therapy International is a UK registered charity.  Our main activity is the provision of Introductory Music Therapy Training Projects to help local care staff (our Local Partners) to improve the quality of life for marginalised children and adults with a range of disabilities. We then offer longterm support to our Local Partners as they continue using the new skills running music programmes for the children and adults in their care, after our training team has left. 

The charity’s roots lie in Romania where we have a network of Local Partners spanning the country, all of them pioneering and developing the use of music in the care and rehabilitation of thousands of children and adults with special needs. Music as Therapy International also works in other countries and you can read more about all of the territories in which we are working by clicking on the flags on the right hand side of our website.

Our vision is for MasT International to become the hub of international projects rooted in music therapy. We facilitate the development and delivery of projects which are taking therapeutic music-making to new communities across the world.  Projects which, without experienced and clinically-focused support, might not reach their true potential.
