Sustainability: Every Music as Therapy International project aims to have an impact that lasts longer than our active presence within the participating community. We believe effective partnerships between employees, volunteers and Local Partners are fundamental to sustainability. We make every effort to enable Local Partners to build on our investments in their communities. We share our resources with others working in related fields to broaden the impact of our work.
Integrity: We are honest and ethical in all that we do. This ensures that our credibility, leadership and use of charitable funds are never in question. We demonstrate best practice at all times, guided by a professional code of ethics.
Respect: We are passionate about understanding the real needs of communities we work in and believe sensitivity to local culture and customs is vital. Time allowed to listen to, observe and learn from our Local Partners is integral to our projects. A collaborative approach is paramount.
Innovation: Making concepts of music therapy accessible to people in non-traditional contexts requires creativity, compromise and vision. We encourage innovative practice to achieve this and strive for continuous organisational development as we learn from each project.
