Music therapy

Jun 13, 2021




Music therapy is a research-based profession that uses music intentionally to support people’s health, functioning and wellbeing

It is different from music education or music as entertainment, as it focuses on addressing non-musical goals

Music therapy can be effective at motivating children with special needs, making their learning and development more holistic, meaningful and enjoyable.

Music therapists are individuals who have received a Bachelor's degree or higher in music therapy and have passed their board-certification exam and been approved for licensure. Music therapists assess the strengths and needs of each client based on an evaluation that is taken at the beginning of treatment. In music therapy sessions, our children work hard on their goals in a supportive environment where they are motivated by instrument play, vocalization and musical games and activities.

It’s quite clear that music therapy is a form of treatment that should be taken very seriously. It can help with many things, and fortunately, it’s becoming more widely available. That being said, you should be careful to ensure that it’s not the only form of treatment you’re undergoing as it’s not fit to be the only remedy for most illnesses. It works hand-in-hand with other forms of treatment and can help you get better. There is a great deal of evidence showing that music therapy has been used throughout history, dating back to the Ancient Egyptians. This shows how powerful music really is.
