About Music Therapy

What is music therapy?  Generally, this is the first question we hear in our field of alternative health care.  Music therapy, simply put, is the therapeutic use of music by a trained professional to achieve a desired effect or accomplish a personal goal or objective.

According to the American Music Therapy Association, “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.”
