Transforming lives through art and music

This helps them work through complex issues and build their confidence and resilience.

Using music to help children express themselves

Coram’s music therapists work with children who find it difficult to communicate, engaging them in interaction by helping them express themselves through all aspects of music. This includes voice, movement, percussion instruments and piano.

Who benefits from Coram music therapy

Children and young people with a range of needs can be referred for music therapy. They can be post-adopted children, children who have experienced trauma or children and young people with learning difficulties. 

Depending on circumstances, we work with children individually, with their parents or families, or in small peer groups. Sessions usually last between 30 and 50 minutes and take place weekly. The therapist reviews the child’s needs after each ten-week block of sessions. Sessions are delivered at the Coram Campus in London, and in nurseries and schools.

Parents and professionals can refer a child or young person for music therapy. For any other questions and to find out more, contact our team on 020 7520 0311 or at
