Tiffany is a HCPC registered music therapist, a member of the British Association for Music Therapy (BAMT) and the founder of Edinburgh Music Therapy. After graduating in BMus music from the University of Sheffield in 2010, Tiffany spent time running community music groups for children and adults with special needs and visual impairments. This experience inspired Tiffany to continue this work and go on to train as a music therapist. She moved to Edinburgh to study at Queen Margaret University and has since completed her training, achieving an MSc in Music Therapy with distinction. Tiffany has experience working with children and adults in a wide range of settings including learning disabilities, mental health and dementia care.
Tiffany has a continued interest in music therapy for children with learning disabilities and was able to expand her experience, running sessions at a School for complex and additional needs whilst completing her training. In addition, Tiffany has a passion for the use of music therapy in dementia care. As part of her MSc degree, Tiffany explored the benefits of music therapy group sessions with this client group and went on to present this study as a poster presentation at the Anglia Ruskin Music Therapy and Dementia conference in Cambridge. Since then she has continued to expand her understanding of how music therapy can help people with dementia, and hopes to contribute to more research in the future. Alongside music therapy, Tiffany has a strong passion for music and enjoys performing and teaching.
