What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is a non-threatening, client centered therapy, that uses music as a tool to reach non-musical goals.  Unlike other therapies, music is used as a motivator and distraction to reach those goals.  Music Therapy is always implemented by a board certified music therapist.  

Why music therapy?

  • A music therapist can mold a musical experience (i.e. tempo, dynamics, and type of music) based on the client's reactions 

  • Music therapists can create groups where residents with different functioning levels can participate

  • Music therapy can create group cohesion and aid in socialzation 

  • A music therapist is always thinking about the client, instead of just the performance or the act of entertaining

More Information

The American Music Therapy Association's website has a wealth of information supporting the use of music with varying populations.
