Energy Music: Mission Statement

Energy Music is a local community radio station based in Belfast curr ​ently operating online and via a free to download app. It is run by a small team of volunteers who believe in Energy Music’s main principal- Music matters.

Music is primal to life and expressed by each of us every day whether through dancing to a favourite tune, keeping rhythm with a pencil in a workplace or remembering a special time when hearing a forgotten melody. It is central to our lives and is embedded in our culture, defining how we acknowledge milestones, rites of passage and celebrations as well as providing comfort, transformation and inspiration. Music links us to our surroundings and provides a pathway back to our past.

We at Energy Music believe that Music contains the power to heal and what better “medicine” than a “treatment” that has only positive side effects?
Or a “therapy” that is actually enjoyable? That is the miracle of music when applied with intention.

Music is shown to have the ability to help organise the brain. Studies have shown that the results of a 30 minute musical therapy session last for several hours afterward. Positive results include elevated mood, increased socialization and appetite and reduction in agitation. These benefits are attributed to the stimulation the brain receives during a music therapy session, a sort of “cognitive workout” inspiring us to coin the phrase, “What exercise is to the body, music is to the brain.” The power of music often inspires physical movement and can be used in combination to encourage gentle exercise.

The efforts of Energy Music are focused to develop a range of localised activities aimed at 17-30 year olds to encourage discipline, confidence, socialisation and behavioural development adjustments. Alongside providing training and music therapy to those in need, we can help develop music skills and provide opportunities for those benefiting from our services to showcase their new skills publically at dedicated events or via our online platforms. Our online station operates 24 hours a day 365 days per year as a support to our services offered and to provide a release or escape through the power of music any time a person needs to tune in and from any location.

We currently receive no Statutory or Local Government support and fund our station and support services through donations, advertisement fees and self-funds. No matter how small or large, all donations help us increase the opportunities we can offer, and as a voluntary run service – your donation will make a real and noticeable difference.

‘Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.’ Sir Elton John
