Ealing Music Therapy Vision
2020 – 2030

To provide Music Therapy to children and young people in the London Borough of Ealing who could benefit from Music Therapy.


Ealing Music Therapy (EMT) is an independent charity providing Music Therapy to children and young people in schools across the Borough of Ealing.

Established in the 1990s, EMT continues to expand with a vision to be available to all children and young people by 2030 that can benefit, and particularly for children with special needs.

Music therapy is a powerful clinical intervention delivered by music therapists trained to a master’s level in the application of music as a therapeutic and psychosocial tool.

Through the use of music therapy, children and young adults can help make connections and build confidence such as people interactions and help put their emotions into words.


What Is Music Therapy?

Music therapy is a clinical intervention using music creatively to form a therapeutic relationship to support each child to reach their full potential in different areas including emotional, social, physical and developmental aims.

“Music Therapy has enabled pupils to develop a positive relationship and interactions with their therapy partner, increase vocalisations and gain confidence within self, and develop some stability with their emotional and physical wellbeing.”

Mundrika, Assistant Head Teacher, Mandeville School

“There has been noticeable impact just on his behaviour… he is able to be calmer and more focused in class and we do feel this has been a direct result of the work that has gone on through Music Therapy… his ability to work through difficulties, emotions, talking through things that happened now and in the past.”

Elspeth, ARP Leader, St John’s Primary School

“I think it is really clear how much the children enjoy Music Therapy. If you have got children who are enjoying what they do, then you’ve got children who are engaged and if they are engaged then they’re regulated, happy, learning and they’re connecting.  At Springhallow we focus a lot on making connections.”

Dawn, Outreach Lead, Springhallow School

“The ‘Find Your Voice’ group provided a safe and predictable environment for the pupils to explore and develop their communication skills. It enabled pupils to develop their observation and awareness of one another, explore singing and grow in confidence.”

Mundrika, Assistant Head Teacher, Mandeville School

“We use evidence-based practice, providing measurable and tangible outcomes. Music Therapists monitor and evaluate the benefits of Music Therapy and clinical supervision to monitor progress and plan future interventions.”
