Why music therapy works


Communication, cognition, emotions, movement, and socialization all activate specific brain regions or structures.


Music, however, has no specific brain structure. It takes many different parts of the brain working together to process music we hear. Music therapy takes full advantage of this phenomenon.


Music helps us communicate and helps us remember and organize our thoughts. It speaks to our emotions and makes us want to move. It helps us bond and can be deeply spiritual.


Because music activates each of these areas, music therapy can target each of these areas.
