About Music Therapy

“Music therapy is the professional use of music and its elements as an intervention in medical, educational, and everyday environments with individuals, groups, families, or communities who seek to optimize their quality of life and improve their physical, social, communicative, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual health and wellbeing. Research, practice, education, and clinical training in music therapy are based on professional standards according to cultural, social, and political contexts” (World Federation of Music Therapy, 2011)

Research has shown that music therapy is an effective method for myriad of populations, including general health and wellness for those with and without diagnosed conditions. Music therapists are educated and trained to use assessments, evidence-based interventions, and evaluations of measurable outcomes in clinical practice.
