Welcome to Key Changes Music Therapy

We are a Hampshire-based music therapy service, supporting children and adults with social, behavioural, personal, developmental, learning and emotional issues.

What is music therapy?

Music therapy is a life enhancing and enriching way to work through social and emotional issues.

We use the innate fascination for music-making as a means to assisting individuals with discovering new ways of communicating - opening doors towards experiencing a more fulfilled life

Music therapy provides emotional and social benefits, bringing joy to individuals and their families.

Who do we support?

We work with a broad range of people effected by a variety of physical and psychological needs.

Our therapy service supports young and old- from pre-school children with language delay and behavioural problems, to adults effected by autism, complex learning issues or anxiety, and older adults with dementia.

Music therapy is increasingly recognised as a valuable part of care for some of the most vulnerable people inour society.

Benefits of music therapy

Music therapy can truly enhance peoples' lives - both emotionally and physically - no matter what age or background.

a more positive attitude towards life

overcoming frustrations and fears
