Music as Therapy

January 14, 2008
There are very few things in life that can be felt in ones soul, ones very being. So few things that can change ones life so completely, that one would wonder just who they were before. For some it is religion, others it is a certain dramatic event, but for so many more people in the world, it is music. Music is defined as an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. So as one can see emotion is woven throughout music, music basically is emotion. It can enable a person, it can verify an individual, it can remedy a bad day, or justify one. Music is life. Music is in everything; the trees, the sky, ones own heartbeat. Everything.

Music is often used in therapy; whether as a catalyst to opening a person up, or to calm a traumatized child. To be more specific as a natural therapy.
