What is music therapy?
Music therapy involves the use of music for addressing the social, cognitive, emotional, and physical needs of an individual or a group. A number of different activities are used, for example, guided imagery, writing songs, drumming, playing an instrument, and listening to melodies. The sessions will be tailored based on the people involved. Music therapy is appropriate for people of all ages, no matter whether they are completely healthy, struggling with an illness, or they have communication issues.

Music therapy is able to touch all aspects of the brain, body, mind, and behaviour. It can provide an excellent distraction for the mind. It can also alter our mood and slow the rhythms of our bodies. All of this influences our behaviour and can help us to communicate better and enjoy our lives more. It is amazing to see the impact that music therapy has.

The benefits of music therapy
There are a lot of benefits that are associated with music therapy. Music therapy has been shown to relieve symptoms of anxiety and stress, encourage emotional expression, strengthen your coping skills, enhance your quality of life, and improve your mood.

People don’t need to be musical to benefit from this therapy
People do not need to be musical in order to enjoy or benefit from music therapy. Music therapy is something that can be personalised considerably, which makes it appropriate for people of different ages. This includes everyone from very young children to elderly patients.
