Music Therapy and  It’s Benefits

On Ryan Judd’s web site, The Rhythm Tree, we learn that music therapy is an established health care profession that uses music to accomplish therapeutic goals. In a typical session, the client and therapist create musical experiences through instrument play, movement to music, singing, vocalizing, and song-writing. These experiences are focused on speech, occupational, physical, academic, and/or behavioral goals. Clients do not need any musical skill or experience to participate in and benefit from music therapy.
