Music as Therapy International

+ 44 (0) 20 7735 3231

11 Mowll Street, London SW9 6BG, United Kingdom

Our aim is to make the unique and life-enhancing benefits of music available to as many vulnerable, marginalised people as possible.

Our approach has been developed over twenty years of working internationally, beginning in Romania and expanding to reach multiple countries in four continents.

Drawing on the core principles of music therapy, our projects provide training to staff working in schools, care centres and residential homes. Our accessible approach equips them with new ways of working with vulnerable people in their care on a day-to-day basis, using simple music therapy techniques.

There is no one-size-fits-all model. We have a portfolio of adaptable activities we can tailor to suit local needs. These activities are developed in collaboration with our Local Partners, in keeping with our values as an organisation.
