One of music’s attractions is its ability to help communicate and express feelings.
Music therapy combines the fields of music education and therapy to enhance the development of life skills and can be beneficial to people of any age regardless of musical skill or background.
Music therapy has been successful in improving self-expression, communication, learning, social interaction and personal awareness.
