Community Music Therapy

Indicate your interest to join a community choir for individuals who have had a major illness, aimed at promoting recovery in speech and making social connection.

 

Music Therapy Stress Reduction Program

This group runs once a year, over 8 weeks. It was adapted from a program Evelyn designed as a control protocol for a research study with National University of Singapore. The course structure is similar to Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, but it provides the added dimension of active and receptive music-making in the program. Suitable for corporates and schools to implement as well.

Social Advocacy

We believe on starting things grounded on core values.

  • Equal access and participation in music

  • Technology as an enabler, not substitute in therapy

  • Cost effective and transfer of skills in sessions

  • Safe space for self-expression, creativity and recovery
