“I‘m passionate about inspiring and supporting individuals to flourish in life. It can often be tough to walk alone, so I applaud individuals for taking courageous and forward-thinking steps to engage support and journey towards the life that they desire”.

Sherrene Teh

Music Therapist

Graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Master of Music Therapy in 2012. During her time in Melbourne, she had the opportunity to work at a children’s hospital, a psychiatry facility, as well as a community school.

Sherrene has been practicing as a music therapist based in the Klang Valley and has worked with children and adolescents with special needs, as well as those struggling with mental health issues. She is passionate about advocating for music to be made accessible to everyone, including those with different abilities.

“I work with a family-centred approach whereby I invite parents to be part of the music therapy experience. This allows them to take back what they’ve observed during the session and practise it with their children at home.”
