MUSIC THERAPY DEFINITION: Music therapy is an interpersonal process in which the therapist uses music and all of its facets-physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual-to help clients to improve or maintain their health. PURPOSE: Music can be beneficial for anyone. Although it can be used therapeutically for people who have physical, emotional, social, or cognitive deficits, even those who are healthy can use music to relax, reduce stress, improve mood, or to accompany exercise. There are no potentially harmful or toxic effects. Music therapy can help patients achieve a number of goals through music, including improvement of communication, academic strengths, attention span, and motor skills. They may also assist with behavioral therapy and pain management. PROCEDURE: 1. I will choose a song to be played 2. Listen to the music 3. Sing the song with the music being played Evaluation: At this point, we encourage you to share something from what you heard and express what you have felt during the activity.
