When the heart sings
the mind heals
We offer blocks of 10 private in-home music therapy sessions for children & young adults under 25 who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Upon confirmation of receiving a Music Matters grant you will be contacted by a registered music therapist in your area who will arrange sessions with you.
We are working in partnership with the Australian Music Therapy Association. For more about music therapy visit their website.
“Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to actively support people as they strive to improve their health, functioning and wellbeing.”

OUR SPECIAL EXPERIENCE
During Connor’s treatment for a brain tumour, he had weekly sessions of music therapy. Music was a high note that played on beyond the hour, filling Connor’s heart, home and family with relaxed happy memories. It’s this very personal experience that drives us to support other patients and families.
