Workshop at Reboot Wellness

Hello,

A few days ago, I facilitated a workshop regarding music therapy and addiction, in collaboration with Reboot-Wellness in Gurgaon. It was an exciting afternoon full of music making and interesting conversations regarding music, music therapy and its different techniques and possibilities. The participants were invited to experiment with the instruments and play, regardless their musical background. Individuals are not required to have any previous knowledge or training in music in order to participate in a music therapy session!

 

It was a wonderful afternoon and I look forward to working with Reboot-Wellness in future projects!

“Striking A Chord” – ScooNews

The Music Therapy Trust was recently featured in ScooNews – India’s Most Preferred Education Platform

 

We are truly happy and thankful for this lovely article that ScooNews put together. Also, it shows that India and schools all over the country are taking more and more interest in Music Therapy. In the UK many special needs schools provide Music Therapy as a part of their curriculum and Music Therapy is supported and provided by UK’s National Health Service (NHS). We at TMTT hope through training Music Therapists and spreading awareness across the country that Music Therapy will one day be available for children in Indian schools too.

AIIMS First National Conference on Addiction Psychiatry

Dear readers,

We would love to share with you our participation during the First National Conference on Addiction Psychiatry held at AIIMS on the 27th-29th November in New Delhi.

It was a very captivating conference where presenters and workshop facilitators were eager to share their interesting and cutting-edge work. The Music Therapy Trust also got the chance to present how music therapy can help those struggling with addiction and how this evidence-based and non-invasive treatment can fit in our fast evolving current health system.

We were very glad to attend and present in this important event and got to meet numerous health professionals from all over India.

We look forward to sharing with you more news.
