Welcome to North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre.

Welcome to the NYMTC. Our team of professional Music Therapists provides a community-based music therapy service in North Yorkshire. Music therapy enables people of all ages and abilities to communicate and express themselves through music using voices, instruments and music technology.

We are now beginning our third year of a Development Plan in which we have laid out our intention to expand. We are immensely grateful for all the support we receive and this weekend provides an opportunity to come and buy cake in the beautiful setting of Kirkham Bridge - see our events page.

2015 was a great celebratory year, for details see our Musical Milestones project and download the programme of events for Music Therapy Week to see what great events have been taking place.

2016 opened with the great news that NYMTC Patron, Professor Helen Odell-Miller was recognised in the New Year Honours List. Helen received an OBE for services to music therapy, and we are incredibly proud that she has gained this well deserved accolade, further raising the profile of our profession.

In June at our AGM we thanked Lynne Dawson for her great contribution as our President, as she handed over the role to Sir Frederic Strickland-Constable.

As a charity, we are committed to making our service accessible to all. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from businesses, Charitable Trusts, "Friends" and those who donate equipment, funds and expertise. Maybe you could help us too.
