Will Derbyshire and Erin Munn, two Music Therapists from the University of Melbourne had a very successful month long placement in the Centre for Special Education and Adult Day Centre, between November – December, 2017. This was a result of the collaboration and connection of IICP with the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne. ‘Will Uncle’ and ‘Erin Aunty’ changed the entire ambience of the Centre for Special Education with their music , which reverberating the corridors. The music they played using the guitar and sang, using other musical instruments which they carried along with them, created greater and happier engagement of children and their active participation. There has been a noticeable improvement in positive behaviours, communication and emotional expression as well as the gross and fine motor skills of the children.
