As human beings, we know what to do when we hear music
Where the beat is, moving to the beat, vocalizing, hearing the rhythm
Not taught, it is nature
Music is a universal phenomenon people of all ages and cultural backgrounds can listen,
perform, create, and enjoy it. Present everywhere in the world.
Music is a flexible therapeutic medium it has many different styles and a variety of ways in
which one can be involved (composing, performing, listening). We can change how we are using
the music in session in meeting healthcare goals.
Music is NOT a universal language. Other countries, there are other languages. Music has
different definitions, boundaries, meanings based on culture. How we engage in music varies
based on where we live.
Why Music is Effective
Only thing we do that engages our whole brain
Movement, hearing, creativity, coordination, voice, memory, emotion
Heartbeat, blood pressure, pulse, hand/eye coordination
Pitch interval/pattern, harmony, timbre, rhythm, recognition
The end product is not about making good music
The clients do not need to have any background in music
People can very productively engage with music therapy
Including deaf patients
Share and express
Music As a Tool
