"Nothing lights up the brain than music. But on a spiritual level, we let music into places we don't let anybody else." - Tim
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). It is being used in the medical and rehab settings to address physical, emotional, psycho-social, cognitive, and spiritual needs of patients from pre-term infants to the elderly.
