Music Therapy

Music therapy helps patients and their families cope, addressing emotional, mental and social needs. Music therapy can improve quality of life for patients and caregivers as well as give families an opportunity to share time together in a positive, creative way. It can have a significant positive impact on the overall health and well-being of people dealing with a variety of conditions.

During music therapy, a licensed music therapist works with patients, families and health care professionals through:

  • Making music
  • Writing and discussing songs
  • Listening to music
  • Moving to music
  • Combining with physical, occupational or speech therapy
