Helping to inform and inspire young people
Clinical sessions start this Wednesday 21 Feb!
This pilot focuses on the creative industry and how it can be used within other sectors. It explores music therapy and introduces the concept of an alternative career route using music.
Through clinical and non-clinical sessions, the outcomes for the participants are:
The pilot is split into two halves. The first sessions introduce disability and music therapy, with the students then taking part in an experiential workshop. The students present to their peers and teachers, how they felt when listening to a piece of music using any channel they like – for example, through dance, play, poem etc. During these sessions, students will develop a variety of soft skills which are needed in all jobs.
The second half of the pilot is focused on clinic sessions and due to the sensitivities and needs of the clients, the numbers for this half of the pilot will be comparably small. Students will assist the employer, a music therapist from East London Music Therapy and experience first-hand the power of music therapy.
