Music Therapy Workshop – Chennai , FEB 2019

What is Music therapy?

Music Therapy is a particular type of experience, where the clients engage in a therapeutic process with the therapist using music. Music therapists use live pre-composed, improvised or recorded music in individual and group settings to reduce heightened feelings of fear and isolation, to promote mental focus, to distract attention away from pain and discomfort, to cue relaxation and to come up with various essential coping strategies. Music therapy is also helpful in the process of handling stress, anxiety and depression. Thus this therapeutic tool will give you a personalized experience and help you see how music can be used during therapy sessions with clients.
