What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is "the evidence-based use of music to accomplish individual therapeutic goals led by a fully qualified professional who has completed an approved music therapy program."

No one can doubt that music has the power to change one's mood; it can bring on sadness, happiness, excitement, apprehension or any of a host of other emotions.  Music clearly affects the brain.  Similarly a stroke affects the brain, but often in terms of nervousness, fear and indecision.  Music Therapy aims to minimise the negative impact of stroke by maximising the positive impact of music.
