|What is Music Therapy?|
Music therapy involves using music as a tool to help people regain or develop important life skills, such as communication, physical movement, attention and memory, emotional growth or social skills. Therapeutic techniques are based on scientific knowledge regarding how the human brain and body respond to and utilize musical stimuli.
Music therapists work with individuals of all ages who require treatment due to deficits in physical, cognitive or social/emotional functioning. Potential employment sites include medical or psychiatric hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, special education or early intervention school settings, hospices, or correctional settings. Music therapy can be a rewarding career for the individual who has a strong musical background and who is interested in a health care profession.
