Music Group (1)

Join us online for our fun music groups with Music Therapist Victoria! 

We will provide you with details on how you can make the sessions a full sensory experience using items to feel, see, hear and smell, which are easily found around the house.

It’s an opportunity for children to continue to make music, sing, dance and get support, even if they are unable to attend in person, reducing feelings of isolation.
