Music Therapy


What is a music therapist?

Music therapy is an evidence-supported field within allied health, employing music to actively aid individuals in enhancing their overall health, functionality, and emotional well-being. No musical abilities, such as singing or playing an instrument, are necessary to engage with or benefit from this therapy. Through therapeutic musical interactions, clients’ abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives, enabling a more empowered and independent way of living.
