Our clinics provide a warm and friendly environment where your child’s needs will be supported and their progress will be celebrated. All of our Music Therapists share a passion in working with children and families to achieve their learning goals through music.
Our Music Therapists will empower children and their families with skills that encourage learning.

How can a music therapist help your child?
During childhood, children take in physical, emotional, social and cognitive information and language from their experiences and their environment. Music therapy in Jordan Springs delivers opportunities to encourage general development through music making methods and play with activities such as instrumental play, singing, listening to music, song writing, sensory play, and movement.
Some goal areas music therapy can target in your child’s lifelong learning include:
- Social skills
- Dealing with emotions
- Handling situations
- Attention and focus
- Following instructions
- School readiness
- Making friends
- Fine and gross motor skills
- Sequencing and memory
- Improved wellbeing
- Motor planning
- Speech and language
- Body awareness and sensory integration
What is a Music Therapist?
Music therapists are trained with advanced musicianship and therapeutic training to assess and provide music therapy to children experiencing difficulties in communication, emotional regulation, social interaction, and sensory and motor integration. To create a customised therapy plan, a music therapist will work with you and other therapists to assess your child’s needs and goals.
What to Expect in Your First Music Therapy Consultation
Your Music Therapist will:
- Find out what’s going on with your child, and why certain behaviours or difficulties might be occurring.
- Provide you with a plan to get your child moving in the right direction immediately
- Create an individualised solution to help you get the results that your family needs
Chatterbox recognises that each child is different. Chatterbox is here for you and your entire family. We will provide ongoing support for your child’s needs.
Our passionate (and fun!) Paediatric Music Therapists collaborate with those most important in your child’s life to adapt and implement individual goals for your child. Our recommendations and working together will ensure your child’s success in achieving their goals.
We believe every child has the right to have access to therapy no matter where they live, so we offer online therapy services as well as services within our clinics in Rosehill, Bella Vista, Oran Park, Penrith & Kingswood, we proudly also offer our music therapy services to local Kingswood residents and surrounding suburbs such as Cambridge Park, Jordan Springs, Werrington, Caddens and Claremont Meadows.
Who will be my child’s music therapist?
We value your child and your family and want to help them reach their full potential. Each time you visit our clinic, you will see the same therapist. This means that your child and family become familiar with the therapist who will lead your child’s health journey. This will allow the therapist to learn how your child learns and changes as they grow.
All our therapists have a Master of Music Therapy degree and are members of the professional body, the Australian Music Therapy Association. All of our therapists are familiar with working with children of all ages.
Our therapists are required to continually update their skills. They attend regular Professional Development Workshops and Professional Conferences so that they can continue to provide the Chatterbox community with the most up-to date, research-based therapy.
