Hi, my name's Jacinta Calabro and I’m a registered music therapist.
I'm passionate about sharing the benefits of music with your child and supporting you in your parenting journey.
I’ve always been drawn to working with young children and helping parents build strong bonds of attachment with their children. Using our voices, positive touch, movement and singing are wonderful ways to connect parents with their babies & children.
Music is also a great way to support children to reach their early developmental milestones, stimulating gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, vestibular, language, emotional and social skills development. My groups at TLC Music are strongly informed by infant/child mental health and attachment theory, and how these (along with music) can support the development stages of childhood.
I’ve been a music therapist for over 20 years and have worked with infants, children and their families my whole career. I have a background in paediatric and neonatal music therapy, as well as community music therapy and music therapy higher education. I have both undergraduate and post graduate qualifications in music therapy and am an active member of the Australian music therapy community.
