Music therapy helps people of all ages and abilities work on health and wholeness. All genres of music may be used within a therapeutic relationship via listening, singing, playing, or writing. Music Therapy is, “a systematic process of intervention wherein the therapist helps the client to promote health, using music experiences and the relationships that develop through them as dynamic forces of change” (Bruscia, 1989).
