Need more help deciding?

Music has been around since the beginning of civilization and man first strung together a rhythm on some random object. Since then, music has been a source of communication and healing. Music has come to define generations and cultures. It is a daily part of our lives and has become something we wake up to, go to bed to, and work to. It is such an integral part of our lives that hardly a minute goes by that we are not exposed to some sort of rhythmic tune whether it be from our phones, we our humming a tune, TV, computer, or the radio.

How does music affect my emotions?

Music is very emotional and powerful and it affects our minds and our hearts. It can make us feel happy, sad, and afraid. It is a powerful tool and when used correctly can be an effective intervention to use in healing. Music therapy has been formally around since WW1 and WW2 when it was used to entertain troops. From its humble beginnings Music therapy has grown to be a clinical evidence based practice in treating mental health issues.
