WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY

Music Therapy is the clinical use of music to accomplish individualized goals. Music has the ability to bring us joy and comfort, to motivate us and to help us relax. It has the power to transport us back in time, to calm our worried minds or boost our moods. There really is a song for every emotion. 

When Music Is the Best Medicine

Music therapy offers many benefits for people with a variety of mental or physical health challenges.
