Definition of Music Therapy

Music Therapy is the prescribed use of music and musical interventions for the purpose of restoring, maintaining and improving emotional, physical, physiological and spiritual health and well-being.

Music therapy treatment is administered by a board-certified music therapist to persons of all ages who require special services because of behavioral, social, learning, or physical disabilities.

Music therapy services can be conducted in hospitals, health clinics, day care facilities, schools, mental health centers, substance abuse facilities, nursing homes, hospices, rehabilitation centers, correctional facilities, and private homes.

Music Therapy treatment addresses non-musical goals. Therefore, no musical ability is needed in order for the client to benefit from Music Therapy treatment.
