According to the Encyclopædia Britannica (2020), “music therapy, clinical discipline in which music is used to address nonmusical goals. Therapists use music listening, songwriting, improvisation, and lyric analysis as means of fulfilling goals in movement, cognition, speech and language, and mental health.”
Music therapy is, defined by Encyclopædia Britannica (2020), as “an allied health profession, delivering health services that are outside the scope of those traditionally provided by physicians and nurses. Because music is a familiar and powerful medium, it is conducive to application across the lifespan, from use in neonatal intensive care units to nursing homes and hospice facilities. Psychiatric hospitals, correctional institutions, and drug rehabilitation centres may also use music therapy.”
