The healing power of music

Music Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that helps with various disorders, including cardiac conditions, depression, autism, substance abuse and Alzheimer’s disease. 

In hospital inpatient care, Music Therapy activities can be used to alleviate pain in conjunction with pain medication, mitigate pre-operative or hospitalisation anxiety, elevate patient mood, enhance physical rehabilitation, induce sleep, reduce muscle tension for relaxation and maintain a person’s overall quality of life.

Music therapists rely heavily on funding from caring supporters like you to continue their important work.

Will you sponsor one of our dedicated Music Therapists and ensure we meet the needs of all patients across two hospitals?

Music changes lives

Catherine is non-verbal, living with Autism and an intellectual disability. She regularly sees Music Therapist Patsy Tan, who works to improve her memory and cognitive function, one song at a time. 

“She is learning how to count through music, and she can sing phrases when Patsy plays for her. It’s the best therapy she could possibly have.” 

Margaret, who is recovering from an amputated leg, has also felt the therapeutic benefits of music therapy. 

“I was bored to tears – I couldn’t do anything, and I was stuck on my side for most of the day when someone suggested music therapy,” says Margaret. 

“I find music therapy relaxing and it helps me switch off from whatever is happening in my life.”

Together, we're stronger.

“Some patients can't remember their own name, or name of family members. But they remember the lyrics to a song they know. It's very rewarding to see their personality come back,” said Ainsley, Assistant in Nursing.
