NDIS Music Therapy

Get help connecting with music and sound using individualised Music Therapy

Empowering people through music


There are few things that stimulate your brain the way music does. Research has shown that listening to, or making music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and pain, as well as improve sleep quality, mood, mental alertness, and memory. It’s a total brain workout in the best way.

Music therapy aims to support people with a disability to improve their health, well-being and communication. This research-based Allied Health profession relies on the use of music, movement and conversation to encourage independence.

People of all ages can benefit from music therapy in managing physical and mental health as we work together to identify your goals and use creative music techniques to meet them.

Music therapy sessions are designed specifically to address the needs and goals of a participant and musical experiences are facilitated by a qualified music therapist.

Music therapy is an allied health support that is approved by the NDIS. When provided by a Registered Music Therapist (RMT), NDIS participants can use their NDIS funding for music therapy. The funding aims to provide people with disability the means to promote a healthy, active and meaningful life.

What is a Music Therapist?


Registered Music Therapists (RMT) are musicians who have completed a Bachelor of Music and an Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) accredited tertiary course.

Through ongoing professional development and recency of practice activities approved by the AMTA, your RMT will have a thorough understanding of how music can influence behaviours, feeling and thinking and will incorporate a range of music-making methods to address individual client goals.


In each session your Music Therapist will use their therapy training and musical ability to facilitate interactive musical experiences to help you achieve your goals.

Some music-based techniques include using instruments, singing and movement. For example, if your objective is to improve fine motor skills and coordination, your session might focus more on using instruments like drums or guitar. If you are wanting to improve your speech, your therapist might focus on singing.

Evidence Based

Utilising evidence-based practices, Music Therapists use a series of techniques to build your skills. These techniques can incorporate an active process where you take part in creating music, or a passive one that involves listening or responding to music.

Some methods of Music Therapy include using instruments to make music, singing, writing songs, dancing, listening to music, or simply discussing music. Your therapist will determine which methods are best suited to you based on your set goals and objectives.
