Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.
(American Music Therapy Association)

Music therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address and meet physical, social/emotional, cognitive, and spiritual needs of individuals and groups.

Music is innate in all of us.  Music therapy is a flexible and adaptable therapeutic approach to working with people of all ages and all levels of functioning.

The primary elements that are used in music therapy include melody, pitch, and rhythm.
