What is Music Therapy?
According to the American Music Therapy Association (2018):
"Music Therapy is the clinical and
use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a
credentialed professional
who has completed an
approved music therapy program

Music Therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address
physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs
of individuals. After
the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context,
clients' abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives.
Music therapy also provides
avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words.
Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in many areas such as: overall physical rehabilitation and facilitating movement, increasing people's motivation to become engaged in their treatment,
providing emotional support for clients and their families, and providing an outlet for expression of feelings"

MT and Transplant Research Examples
Transplant patients who participated in MT used significantly less narcotic pain medication than patients who did not (Bates et al. 2017).
Transplant patients who received MT post-transplant experienced significantly less pain, anxiety, and nausea (Madson and Silverman, 2010.)
Patients who participated in MT focusing on emotional expression, awareness, understanding, and coping strategies experienced significant increases in positive facial affect, decreases in pain, and decreases in negative affect (Ghetti, 2011.)
Patients who participated in a single MT session experienced decreased pain and improved facial affect (Fredenburg &Silverman, 2014).
Why music?
Mother's voice has musical qualities.
Babies show preference for mother's voice just 2 days after birth. (Fifer & Moon, 1994).
Learning as a child through music
Music activates many different area of the brain at once (Pantev & Herholz, (2011).
Music is associated with movement, emotion, memory, and has cultural significance.
Neuromatrix model of pain: Music stimulates the same areas of the brain that process pain, therefore processing music diminishes perception of pain (Melzack, 2001).
