I am delighted to present my impressions of the symposium ‘Life in the Music Therapy Profession’, a 2018 Music Therapy Week event, which was held at the New Zealand School of Music (Te Kōkī) on 25th October. This was a student-led event, competently organised by Hazel Barrett and Karina Auer, who are second year students on the Master of Music Therapy course at the NZSM, Victoria University of Wellington.

Mahurangi East Library in Auckland had a

Music Therapy display for Music Therapy Week










Creative Kids Trust had a lot of fun during

Music Therapy Week. 


Last week Creative Kids Trust celebrated Music Therapy Week at the Blenheim Library.  Music Therapists were in action with some of the Creative Kids, having a jam session around the piano. Music therapy sessions are conducted in a safe and confidential environment subsequently the Creative Kids rarely perform in public, perhaps just once or twice a year.  Anna Moore & Yvonne MacSweeny, NZ Registered Music Therapist, are two of our members who provide Music Therapy through Creative Kids Trust. If you’d like to get a feel for what happens at the heart of their organisation  watch here… What a wonderful gift!
