About our music therapy groups

We run a number of music therapy groups for pre-school children with learning disabilities and their parents or carers. The groups give children the chance to take part in a range of musical activities including singing, playing instruments, participating in musical games and improvising.

The groups focus on non-verbal communication, which means children with little or no speech can participate fully. They help family members and carers to find new ways of communicating with their children through music. Most importantly, they are a lot of fun and a great place for children, parents and carers to make new friends.


Its a whole body experience music, dancing and singing with friends!

How our music therapy groups help

Taking part in the music therapy sessions gives children the chance to develop a range of communication and social skills. They learn to take turns, make choices and to interact with others. Playing instruments can help children to improve their physical coordination and gives them the opportunity to express themselves.

How you can find out more

We run our music therapy groups at the Cambridge Music Therapy clinic, on the Anglia Ruskin University site, East Road, Cambridge. To find out more please contact us at music@eddies.org.uk or call us on 01223 883130.
