Music Therapy – more than just humming along & tapping your feet

Music Therapy is a research and evidence-based use of musical interventions to actively support people as they aim to improve their health, functioning and quality of life. It can help people of all ages to manage or enhance their physical, social, emotional & cognitive well being. Music Therapy can potentially support & assist people of any age, ability or background. It can be undertaken in any setting; a client’s home, hospital, day centre, aged care facility, school, child care centre etc.

You don’t need to be musical to take part in or benefit from music therapy.

The main goal of music therapy is not musical; for example, to improve fine motor skills, speech or communication skills. Musical experiences are used to achieve non-musical goals. For instance, they can motivate people to use their fingers or to respond to music emotionally and physically. The added benefits of music therapy are musical, and often include opportunities for musical participation.

Research has shown that music therapy can benefit people in many areas or ways, including:

  • Reduce anxiety and stress; Increase motivation
  • Enhanced speech or motor function
  • Improve sleep; Improve balance
  • Increase memory & attention

Music therapy can be utilised in people with a diversity of conditions or diseases, including:

  • Autism; Dementia; Depression
  • Eating disorders; Physical Disabilities
  • Stroke; Intellectual Disabilities
