Music Therapy Spotlight: Charlie

Charlie is five years old and diagnosed with a medulloblastoma brain cancer. He is a RCD Foundation Music Matters recipient, and his love for music is evident!

“Music therapy is the highlight of my week – I love it! My favourite part is singing and playing along with my ukulele. Music makes me so happy!!”

Watch the video below for a glimpse of a music therapy session with Charlie and RCD Foundation Music Therapist, Megan. Although not a typical session (Megan isn’t always dressed up and in character as Elmo!) they are usually just as joyful.

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.
