What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy is the intentional and focused use of music and/or music activities to facilitate change and improve quality in non-musical aspects of life. 

Music is therapeutically used to address/reach goals affecting physiological/physical, psychological/emotional, cognitive/thought patterns and social interaction. 

Music speaks to the best parts of each of us and utilizes strength-based approach to therapy.
