The Raukatauri Music Therapy centre has just celebrated its 10th birthday. Despite the growing demand for music therapy, the Auckland centre remains the only music therapy centre in New Zealand. Each week 200 people have therapy sessions at RMTC's Grey Lynn villa or as part of the centre's outreach programmes in schools, early childhood centres and rest homes.

Carol Stiles visits the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre to hear how everyone, no matter what their ability, can be drawn into shared music making and how music therapy can help improve lives.
