Music Therapy is the use of music to obtain a non-music goal, such as improving attention, expressing emotions safely, reaching developmental milestones or relaxation. No experience or knowledge of music is necessary for the client, the music therapist will design the sessions so that ALL clients are musically successful, regardless of age, cognitive level or physical ability.
