Music as Therapy International is a UK registered charity with twenty years’ experience of devising and delivering innovative, high-impact music therapy projects around the world.
We believe passionately in the power of music to make the most of people’s potential, overcoming obstacles such as disability, trauma and mental illness.
Our aim is to make the unique and life-enhancing benefits of music available to as many vulnerable, marginalised people as possible. But we do not parachute in to perform short-term miracles. Instead we train local people to use simple music therapy techniques and musical activities providing them with resources and professional support to make sustainable change long after our volunteer team has left.
