Music Therapy Association of BC
|Description & Services|
|Description||Music therapy has been shown to be effective with people of all ages and abilities. Whether the challenges be physical, emotional or psychological, a visit to a music therapist may prove beneficial. |
Within a session, any or all of the following might take place:
• song writing or music composition
• singing or playing familiar music
• listening to recorded music (CDs)
• improvising (making up) music
Music therapy is defined by the Canadian Association for Music Therapy (CAMT) as the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist. It is a discipline which combines the use of music with the personal qualities of the therapist as a treatment for rehabilitating, maintaining, and improving the lives of persons with emotional, cognitive, social, spiritual, psychological and physical needs.
At its core, music therapy is the interaction between a therapist, a client (or clients) and the music.
