WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY?
Group music therapy facilitates harmony in life and harmony with your soul. It realigns the natural vibration of happiness, health, love, friendship and joy, while providing a clear channel for transforming past darkness, sadness, madness and sorrow. Music therapy relieves frustration, disappointment, anger, and aggression by vibrating past the emotion to a higher frequency of love.
History of Music Therapy:
The idea of music as a healing influence which could affect health and behavior is as least as old as the writings of Aristotle and Plato. The 20th century profession formally began after World War I and World War II when community musicians of all types, both amateur and professional, went to Veterans hospitals around the country to play for the thousands of veterans suffering both physical and emotional trauma from the wars. The patients' notable physical and emotional responses to music led the doctors and nurses to request the hiring of musicians by the hospitals. It was soon evident that the hospital musicians needed some prior training before entering the facility and so the demand grew for a college curriculum.
