Music therapy is a research based health profession in which music therapists use musical activities or interventions to achieve non-musical goals with clients of all ages and disabilities.
“Music-based activities can represent a valid and without side effects intervention for reducing psychological and behavioral disturbances related to neurological disorders and also for promoting the functional recovery.”
