Ambassadors Header Image

Parkwood Hall employs a HCPC registered music therapist, delivering a range of individual sessions, small groups, whole class sessions and bands according to the various needs of students. Music therapy is active joint music making – engaging, fun, creative, expressive and sociable, emphasising the inviting, communicative, organisational and co-operative aspects of music making. Within music therapy, all students at the school are musicians, with the potential to develop their musical character, interests and involvement.

The school has a well-equipped music room with a wide variety of accessible instruments. At Parkwood Hall, music therapy is both a targeted intervention to help students with communication and engagement, and also an integrated part of the school’s wider, lively and active musical life.
