Why Use Music Therapy to Address Mental Health Needs?

mental health music therapy in LongmontPeople are neurologically and physiologically hardwired to respond to music. Music can affect us emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually. Music therapy uses this power that music has to create therapeutic change.

Music therapy is the clinical use of music to address goals related to one’s physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual or existential states of being. It’s a recognized allied healthcare profession. Like other healthcare professionals, board-certified music therapists (MT-BC) assess for therapeutic need. From their assessments they develop individualized music therapy treatment plans.

SoundWell Music Therapy specializes in doing this in behavioral and mental health.

How Music Therapy Can Help You Manage Your Mental Health Needs

Music can help you calm down, gather your thoughts, and self-regulate. It can motivate and inspire you. Music can help you focus and learn, while it can also help you tap into your own resourcefulness and knowledge.

Music can help you connect with, express, and move through your personal pain so that you find your personal meaning and joy in life.

Music Instruction is available in piano and voice. Playing an instrument can help foster attention and focus, while boosting self-confidence and self-esteem. Music lessons are different from music therapy in that the goal of lessons is purely musical. SoundWell Music Therapy offers both traditional and adapted lessons. This allows SoundWell to offer instruction to neurotypical and neurodivergent students.

You can’t overestimate the value of learning how to play a musical instrument. This is true whether you’re young or old.
