Ardenleigh music project

A special music project was introduced to Ardenleigh CAMHS last year, whereby hour long sessions were provided by an external musician. The sessions allowed the young people to create their own lyrics and produce their own music using a computer program.

As part of the project, each young person was provided with their own MP3 player, which they were able to transfer their compositions on to, so that they could listen to them in between sessions.

The staff felt that the project provided a unique form of music therapy, which had made a positive difference. The young people who took part looked forward to their sessions and enjoyed sharing their musical abilities with each other and staff.
