What Is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.  
      -American Music Therapy Association

Services provided in the Ohio University Community Music Therapy Clinic are made possible through cooperation between the Athens Community Music School and the Ohio University Music Therapy Department.  

Due to music's many effects on the brain and its common integration in every day life in all cultures, Music Therapy provides a comfortable, enjoyable, and motivating opportunity for therapeutic progress and skill development.  

Individuals of all ages with needs in communication, motor, social, emotional, cognitive, psychological, academic, and behavioral skill domains benefit from Music Therapy.  Music therapists work with individuals with a variety of diagnoses including but not limited to autism, developmental delays, behavioral disorders, psychological disorders, dementia disease, stroke, and traumatic brain injury.
