Music Therapy Degrees

Music therapy degrees prepare students to work in professions where sound is used to improve the quality of the lives of children and adults. So what is music therapy? What are the benefits of music therapy? Music therapy is the use of music by allied health professionals to promote healing for their patients and also to enhance their quality of life. Music therapy is used to promote social interaction, encourage emotional expression, and relieve health symptoms. Music therapists use active or passive methods with their patients. Students who attend music therapy programs including music therapy certification and music therapy masters programs learn how to use their talents and apply them to the growing field of medical therapies, including both psychological and physical therapies. Some therapists also work with children and adults who have learning and cognitive disabilities, such as autism and aspergers.
