Alice Cotton - Flute, Special Needs, and Music Therapy
Flute, Piccolo Music Teacher
MUSIC THERAPY SERVICES for children and adults with a disability
Music allows people and communities to engage, interact and build positive relationships. Through participation in music therapy, people are able to build on their interest in music to address personal goals, such as mood regulation, social interaction, communication skills, and community engagement. Our music therapist focuses on inclusion and creativity, offering participants an environment that is centered on their needs and interests.
Music often brings great pleasure to young children, and it can be a motivating way to enjoy interactions with others and learn new skills. Music therapy offers a fun and encouraging environment for children to increase their social skills, optimise development, and enhance self-regulation, in a way that the entire family can enjoy. This group is for children under 5 years.
Both groups are run in Fitzroy on Wednesday mornings, and are funded by HCWA and NDIS. Please email for pricing.
