About Us

MusicSpace is a charity providing music therapy for people of all ages in Bristol and the South West.

MusicSpace has been providing music therapy services since 1991. We are the largest provider of music therapy in the region. We have a team of professionally trained staff, with extensive experience of providing music therapy to people with different needs.

We use music to support people with their emotional, physical and mental health. By playing music together we help people to connect, communicate and express themselves. We know that music can make a difference.

We provide music therapy at our centre in Bristol which has three specialist/dedicated music rooms.

We also provide music therapy to external organisations and work in various outreach settings across the region including:

  • Schools –special schools, mainstream schools, resource bases, pupil referral units and other alternative provisions
  • Residential care homes and children’s homes
  • Early-years settings including opportunity groups, children’s centres and parent & child groups
  • Bristol Children’s Hospital

"Making music puts you totally in the moment which is a beautiful place to be – open and in communication with those around you."
