What is Music Therapy? 

Music therapy is a discipline in which Certified Music Therapists (MTAs) use music purposefully within therapeutic relationships to support development, health, and well-being. Music therapists use music safely and ethically to address human needs within cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physical, social, and spiritual domains.

Music Therapy is collaborating in a therapeutic relationship with a Certified Music Therapist (MTA) to harness the power of music for one's health and well-being. 

Where do Music Therapists work?

Music Therapists work in supportive living and long-term care homes, schools, hospitals, group homes, correctional centers, rehabilitation facilities, and clients' personal homes. 

Benefits of Music Therapy

Music is used intentionally to work towards non-musical goals which can include, but is not limited to, gross and fine motor movement, self-expression, speech and language skills, attention, decision-making and reasoning, memory recall, pain management,

social skills, and relaxation. 

Who can participate in Music Therapy?

You do not need to be musical to participate in Music Therapy. Rather, you are invited to come as you are to engage in a musical environment. Anyone who finds interest and enjoyment in music can participate in Music Therapy.
