Newcastle Music Therapy is registered as a COVID Safe business.

As Newcastle Music Therapy starts to ease back into face-to-face sessions, we would like to reassure you that we are committed to providing a safe environment for all clients and staff.
We are following the guidelines of Safe Work Australia to ensure our practice meets all Work Health and Safety requirements to minimise the risks associated with COVID-19.
Some of the changes we have implemented include:
  • cleaning our therapy equipment after each session and cleaning the clinic surfaces at the end of each day
  • placing helpful signs regarding handwashing and how to sanitise your hands around our practice
  • placing markers around the clinic to create 1.5m social distancing while you wait for your session
  • practicing good hygiene as staff members
  • providing hand sanitiser, soap and antibacterial spray and wipes for the use of both staff and clients
  • temperature checks upon your arrival at our clinic


If a therapist is unwell we will ensure we cancel your session. If the therapist is well enough to provide telehealth sessions, you will have the option of doing so. Similarly, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms we ask you to please cancel your session or contact us to switch to a telehealth session.

As always, you can contact us on 0410 834 885 or if you have any questions or queries.

Changing lives through music!

About Music Therapy

Music can motivate and energise us, it can lift us up and calm us down, it can express feelings and ideas, and it can connect us with people, places and memories.

Music therapy combines the power of music and the skills of a registered music therapist to help support you and reach your potential.

Music therapy is about using music to help you with whatever it is you need. Whether it’s improving your speech, getting your body moving, expressing your feelings, connecting with others, supporting your learning or helping you to relax, music therapy can help.

Our Services

Newcastle Music Therapy offers a range of services including music therapy, art therapy, and music tuition.

Our services are delivered through individual sessions for children, teenagers & families, group sessions, workshops and professional development.

All therapy services are conducted by fully trained registered music therapists and art therapists who have experience in helping you reach your potential.

Newcastle Music Therapy is a registered NDIS provider.
