Why Trust Play Anything Music Therapy?

Registered Music Therapist Carlin McLellan founded Play Anything Music Therapy in 2017. Everything we do is informed by our mission: To meet the unique needs of each individual, utilising creative and collaborative approaches. 

Carlin encourages his clients to develop their strengths, enhance their wellbeing, and cultivate creative discoveries through music. 

  • Children love singing, dancing, and playing instruments, which means that most kids also love music therapy. Music is a great motivator, especially for children with ASD, ADHD or intellectual disability. Music therapy may help them to improve communication, develop listening skills, participate in games with other kids, unwind and calm down, improve confidence, and develop motor skills and co-ordination. It doesn’t hurt that music therapy is an enjoyable activity and kids are happy to participate.

  • You may already know that music is important to your child. Does listening to or playing music bring comfort during tense episodes, provide vitality and a sense of connection for a worn-out teenager, or assist in expressing pent-up emotions that can’t always be put into words?

Carlin has worked in the disability arena, assisting infants, children and adults, for more than ten years and has presented at national and international conferences about the use of music technology to facilitate accessible music making.
