What is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is the clinical, evidence-based use of music to achieve therapeutic goals. These goals are individualized, functional, and non-musical to each person. Clinical objectives are identified by a board certified music therapist (MT-BC) who has completed an approved music therapy program. As an established allied healthcare profession since 1950, music therapists use clinical interventions to treat a client’s physical, cognitive, communication, social, and emotional needs.
