Training

All our training is tailored to you and developed on an individual basis
We encourage creativity
What experience do I need?

We believe that everyone is innately musical and work on the premise that in order to access or be involved in music therapy, you don’t need to have any pre-existing specific musical skills - so don’t worry if you can’t play a musical instrument! If you do have some experience, you can draw on this, but songwriting, singing and experimenting with musical instruments are all equally important in encouraging individuals and groups to benefit from music as a therapeutic tool.

How to get involved
Our Training

Most of our therapy sessions are either 1-to-1 or in small groups but we believe the benefits of music therapy should continue after your session. So, in addition to these sessions, we offer training for professionals in caring roles or roles in which there is potential for music to be used therapeutically in encouraging an individual’s emotional wellbeing, improving communication or as a method of sensory and cognitive stimulation.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can use music to enhance individuals’ experiences and help build or increase social interaction, get in touch with us. We’d be delighted to explain how we could provide training to you and/or your team based on your specific needs and requirements.

All our training is tailored to you and developed on an individual basis - we’d be more than happy to share examples of what our training sessions may look like upon request.

  Good instruction, excellent presentation. Would recommend the course to colleagues and other health care professionals.  

  Amelia ran a well-presented and interesting course.  

  I now understand the difference between someone who leads music groups and a qualified Music Therapist - a highly qualified professional.  

  This has been one of the most fun courses that I have done and I have thoroughly enjoyed it, thank-you.  

  Brilliant day.

"Our son had the absolute privilege of having Amelia as his Musical Therapy Teacher. He made so much progress with her and really enjoyed their time together each week. I would highly recommend Amelia & her service to anyone interested in Music therapy for their child. She is so patient, warming & Kind. Thank You Amelia & hopefully will see you very soon. xx😊"

"We have known Amelia for one and a half year now. She has done a brilliant work for my son (Abel) who is suffering from brain injury. During the music therapy she is working hard to find any communication or connection to him. Whilst playing on instruments she carefully watches how Abel reacts. I'm sure my son enjoys the music and this sensation helps him recovering. We are happy with Amelia and her work."

"Amelia has worked at Sunflowers Care for over two years, visiting us weekly. Sunflowers care for children and young people with a wide range of complex health needs and Amelia is adaptable to all these needs. She tailors her music therapy sessions accordingly. The music therapy she delivers is always individualised to each child, taking into account their abilities and disabilities. Amelia is flexible in her delivery of her sessions. She will often take the lead from the child and work together with them, holding therapy outside if the weather is nice and allowing the child to make choices about how their sessions develop. Our children that see Amelia regularly have built up trusting and lovely relationships with her and look forward to her visits. We enjoy having Amelia as part of our team, she has excellent communication skills and is open to new ideas and feedback."
