President’s Charity

President’s Charity

The British Association for Music Therapy (BAMT) is the chosen charity of President Melodie Brookes for 2017-18.

“Having spent my working life involved in music

education I have seen the beneficial effects of

participating in musical activity. I would like to be

able to extend the provision of music therapy to

more people, by supporting this area of work of

the BAMT.”

Donations can be made to BAMT via the donate page: Donate Here

The work of music therapists has a decisive impact on the lives of hundreds of people every day. The unique properties of music therapy mean it has the potential to play a vital role in sustaining the health and wellbeing of our society into the future.

Priority areas of public health, care and social wellbeing, such as maximising opportunities for vulnerable children, improving adult mental wellbeing and caring for the growing number of people affected by dementia, are all areas where music therapy has shown it has an important contribution to make.

Music therapists work across a range of health, social care and educational settings, including:

  • Hospitals (NHS and private)
  • Mainstream schools, special schools and pupil referral units
  • Child Development Centres
  • Children’s Centres
  • Day centres
  • Hospices
  • Residential settings including care homes
  • Prisons and forensic settings
  • Acute and post acute rehabilitation centres
  • Specialist music therapy centres
  • Community spaces
  • In people’s homes
