Music therapy incorporates music as a way to improve your mental health and overall well-being. From listening to music, playing an instrument, singing or writing a song, music therapy, when practiced with a licensed therapist, gives you the ability to discover or express underlying causes of pain or stress. People of all ages can benefit from music therapy, and no amount of musical ability or prior experience is needed.
