Here are answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ).
What is music therapy? My favorite definition of music therapy is by the World Federation of Music Therapy:
“Music therapy is the professional use of music and its elements as an intervention in medical, educational, and everyday environments with individuals, groups, families, or communities who seek to optimize their quality of life and improve their physical, social, communicative, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual health and wellbeing. Research, practice, education, and clinical training in music therapy are based on professional standards according to cultural, social, and political contexts.” Source: WFMT, 2011.
