MusicSpace provides a music therapy service to the children at Bristol Children’s Hospital. Our 3 therapists work Monday – Friday with children of all ages, from babies on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to older teenagers. These sessions take place on the overnight wards and include neuro rehab, bone marrow transplant and oncology, cardiac and surgical.
Music therapy is particularly valued by parents and staff for:
- Children and young people who have learning difficulties or those who have difficulty communicating verbally
- Children or babies who are in hospital long term and who may find music therapy useful to help with the emotional demands of their stay
- Babies who are starting to be more responsive, alert and aware of their surroundings
