How It Works

The first step is to identify your goals while working with a music therapist. For instance, if you’re experiencing depression, you might want to use music to lighten up your mood. You may also want to try applying this to other symptoms of depression like anxiety, insomnia, or trouble focusing.

During this session, you may;
  • Listen to different genres of music.
  • Play a musical instrument, or
  • Compose your own songs.
  • You may be asked to sing or dance or they may have a set structure for you to follow.

You may be required to tune in to your feelings as you perform these tasks. For example, if you are angry, you might play or sing aloud.
