Music Therapy: Glossary

Anything that involves the use of tools, techniques and approaches to bring about healing and wellness can be thought of as therapy. Music, skillfully used, can be an important adjunct to healing and performance improvement. Music has long been known to “soothe the heart of the savage beast,” to bring inspiration and high levels of enthusiasm and performance, and to quicken the pulse of romance.

Music can reflect the full range of human emotions, is a non-verbal means of expression, can decrease anxiety and tension, assist in pain management, help relieve insomnia and promote relaxation. It reaches people on emotional, physical and intellectual levels and can bring people together in a shared experience.
