While music can sometimes be therapeutic on its own, music therapy dives deeper into evidence-based music-based approaches to address individualized clinical goals within a therapeutic relationship between the client(s) and credentialed professional. These goals may be physical, emotional, cognitive, or social in nature.
Music fires up neurons across hemispheres of the brain, and provides opportunities for communication for those who find it difficult to express themselves verbally.
As Hans Christian Andersen eloquently stated, “where words fail, music speaks.”
Music brings people together in a unique way. Group music therapy experiences can help facilitate bonding, teamwork, and empathy with a spirit of fun!
