About Me

Alison Talmage
I am a registered music therapist and teacher, originally from the UK, and have lived on the North Shore since 1998. I have worked with people across the lifespan in a variety of educational, health and community settings.

My current professional and research focus is singing and community music therapy for people living with a neurological condition, such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, dementia or brain injury. I am a music therapist and honorary research at the University of Auckland's Centre for Brain Research, and have recently launched a new group north of Auckland, Sing Up Rodney!
