Ruminating on...Music in and as therapy

Music is a very flexible form of art which meets the needs of individuals at various levels.

Music, in and of itself, has therapeutic qualities. However, the key ingredients that makes the session "therapy", are the dynamics and relationship that occur between the therapist and the client. It is about the therapist understanding the client, building a therapeutic relationship of trust, and how the therapist uses the the music to support the client positively in his or her journey towards her goals.

So in music therapy, music is used AS therapy ( in which we use qualities of music such as rhythm, harmonies) to effect positive changes but not without a strong therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client.
