Music Therapy

Music therapy is a method of treatment, which uses music to help people live more fully. The goal of music therapy is not to develop musical ability but to develop the potential of each person. It is the process of making and responding to music that significant benefit arise. The ability and need to respond to music seems to be innate, does not depend on musical ability or training, and usually remains unimpaired by mental and physical health problems.
