Music Therapy project at North Berwick

What a great workshop I participated in at the weekend! The Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy team were excellent and had us singing, clapping and trying out crazy musical instruments like Boom Wackas!

We were there to:

  • find out more about the benefits of music therapy
  • get an update on the NB project (working with youngsters in North Berwick schools), and
  • to meet other supporters and interested parties

We found about what music therapy actually is, about how Music Therapists are trained, who can benefit from therapy and how music therapy can help. The videos of the children during a session were very emotional to watch and the benefits obvious to all.  We were laughing and crying as we watched. 

The music therapists showed great skill as they improvised on the piano whilst interpreting our actions. I’ve been singing ‘Belle Mama’ ever since!
