What is music therapy?
Music therapy is a well-established allied health profession. It consists of using music to address the following areas:
“Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.” (AMTA, 2010).
Music is an extremely motivating medium and unique outcomes are possible within the music therapy setting. Because of its various elements (rhythm, timbre, tempo, emotional association, etc), music affects many areas of the brain concurrently. Rhythmic elements and music can be utilized to create new neuropathways which stimulate brain function.
