Who can benefit from music therapy?

Everyone can benefit from music therapy! If you are being supported by Keech Hospice Care, sessions are open to you and your family, including children, friends and carers.

Where does it take place?

Music therapy room Keech Hospice Care

At the hospice. We have a whole room full of musical instruments for you to choose from, including electric and acoustic guitars, piano, a drum kit and xylophone.

But what if I can’t play an instrument?

Don’t worry - you don’t need to. In a music therapy session, the focus is on improvising, so there are no set rules or pieces of music to practise. Sessions can include writing songs, making music CDs, singing, family work, memory making and simply listening to music.

Who takes the session?

Our music therapist, who is accredited by the British Association of Music Therapy and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

How do I find out more?
