Music therapy has been recognized by the NDIS for inclusion under the support cluster of ‘Capacity Building’ supports and improved Daily Living – to facilitate functional improvement through adjustment, adaptation and building capacity to participate in the broader community.

Music teachers and community musicians are not funded under the NDIS as they are seen as mainstream, everyday services. However, the NDIS may fund the support needed to access these music programs, for example funding transport and/or a support person.

How do I access music therapy?

Music therapy is provided as an allied health service, in the same way as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physio therapy and many others. If you have funding under the category of individual therapeutic support or group therapy support, you may choose to use that funding, or part of that funding, for music therapy.
