Music Unlimited sessions are led by professional musicians with a wealth of experience in all areas of performing and recording. All staff are trained in house by company founder Shaun Lock. In 2003 he developed the service model at a Residential Therapuetic School situated in Essex over a 5 year period under constant review and consultation with Psychotherapists, Teachers, Carers, Art Therapists, Councellors, University Lecturers and Authors. This is how our services cater for all regardless of ability.


Here is how we achieve this...... 


Music Unlimited specialise in making music accessible and fun for all age groups, that is our primary aim. Our staff sensitively support each client to attain their musical wishes and curiosities by allowing and encouraging people to express themselves at a level that they feel comfortable. This is where we begin our work with each individual. At Music Unlimited we encourage our clients to engage at their own pace in a non judgemental, safe and supported recording studio enviroment. By allowing each service user full ownership and most importantly control over their sessions attributes to many of our clients becoming more self motivated with higher self esteem. The knock on effect being that our clients then become more workable and functioning more postively within other aspects of their lives. Music Unlimited is regularly credited for being the main positive intervention and catalyst of change once our service has been put in place for those that are deemed to be struggling in some way or could do with a positive outlet to express themselves.


As our name suggests there are limitless possibilities within our creative formats and musical genres to explore. We aim to inspire and encourage all of our clients to engage with a positive musical experience.
