About Music Therapy
What is music therapy?
Music Therapy is the use of music by a trained and board certified music therapist in the accomplishment of therapeutic aims: the restoration, maintenance, and improvement of mental and physical health.
Music Therapy is a systematic process of intervention wherein the therapist helps the client achieve behavioral, social, emotional, sensory, cognitive, communication, and physical goals and objectives using musical experiences and the relationships that develop through them as dynamic forces of change. It is valid and effective with persons who have functional deficits in any of the above goal areas. Because music therapy is a powerful and non-threatening medium, unique outcomes are possible.
The ultimate goal of music therapy is to help clients achieve their full potential and enhance their quality of life. Because music is pervasive, flexible, and structured, music therapy can be used in several effective ways, and responses may be immediate and readily apparent.
