What is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is therapy through music with people actively creating music and music instruments in a way as of therapy through expression.
Music therapy is using music interventions for clinical and evidence-based therapeutic procedure. Music therapy is one of the many expressive therapies, in which a music therapist uses music and all of its facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients improve their physical and mental health. Music therapists primarily help clients improve their health in several domains, such as cognitive functioning, motor skills, emotional development, social skills, and quality of life by using both active and passive music experiences such as free improvisation, song, dance, listening, and discussion of music to achieve treatment goals.
How does Music Therapy help?
Music Therapy aids in the development of language, communication, behavioural, social and cognitive skills. With a skilled Music Therapists, music can uncover new levels of confidence in those marginalised by poverty, and those with complex disabilities, mental health issues or facing terminal illness.
During therapy, the receiver unwinds over music with active participation in playing various not-so-common music instruments and creating different kinds of music through them. The process is worth experiencing as individual as well as in group. The therapy also helps people who are less expressive and are not being able to tap on their feelings or articulate the exact reason for stress, anxiety, depression or any other mental dis-comfort.
The concept of Music Therapy is driven from the fact that for playing different instruments our brain uses different patterns and the vibrations made through various tunes and sounds help in the process of relieving stress and anxiety.
Music Therapy for Corporate
For an instance, we use drumming for workshops with bigger workforce at corporates as drumming uses the brain in a different pattern than the linear thought process that is usually needed in the work environment. The creative, intuitive side of the brain is more active when we are improvising and playing rhythms.
Not everyone will play the drums in the same way. Each one will play to their strengths up to their own limits but the end resulting music is beautiful. Drum circle is a unique way to show employees that working together as a group is what matters as the results will be better than what an individual person can do. Drumming immediately reduces stressful situations and breaks down barriers between the participants. The group starts to listen to each other rather than concentrating on themselves alone.
