What is song therapy ?
In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in community based singing and music making both face to face and online. Now more than ever perhaps we should be very aware that our music making attracts so many facing health challenges in their lives.
Song Therapy is particularly interested in transferable leadership skills. Soft skills. Self awareness, active listening, person centred thinking and group leadership. A clearly defined professional approach to therapeutic music making in recreational settings.
Students supporting each other during lockdown : an online songwriting assignment
We draw inspiration from the person centred counselling tradition; empathy; positive regard; self awareness; active listening; self worth; acceptance; building supportive creative human relationships in community music making, rooted in established theories of child psychology and modern philosopy.
Beyond this we celebrate music as a friend, as a medicine and as a language, exploring specific ways to use your music making to maximize the positive well being impact of your creative leadership.
Our certificate training has been available in the UK since 2018 and perhaps now more than ever the value of our independent training programme is clear. Sensitive, aware, professional leadership skills. A flexible online study regime that adapts to the demands of everyday living, at a price that is within the means of community music makers who might otherwise not be in a position to enjoy bespoke learning of this kind.
