The power of music and the importance of music therapy

Music affects us all. This moving film depicts the power of music and the importance of music therapy.

What are arts therapies?

Arts therapies are a way of using the arts – for example, music, art, dance or drama – in a therapeutic environment with a trained therapist. In arts therapy, your therapist helps you to express yourself by creating something – such as a piece of music, a painting or a play. This can help you express your feelings, often without using words.

Music therapy

In music therapy, you communicate with your therapist through music. This could mean playing, singing or listening to music. If you are doing group music therapy, you may also use music to communicate with other people in the group.
