How can music therapy help your child?
For many children, music provides alleviation from anxiety. If a child struggles to acknowledge or discuss their emotions, they may find it easier to express themselves through music. It might be easier for them to do so through music, as opposed to spoken or written forms. Calming or slow music can decrease one’s heart rate if they are experiencing acute stress or anxiety. Since music stimulates many parts of the brain, it is an excellent resource for helping people process internal and external information .
In the case of young children, music therapy is incredibly effective. Engaging with music stimulates many different parts of the brain across both hemispheres. Other subjects such as reading, writing, or mathematics, stimulate specific areas of the brain. Music breaks down the boundaries between the two hemispheres of the brain. For children who are still in the early stages of cognitive development, this makes music especially stimulating and engaging.
Music therapy enhances the quality of life. It involves relationships between a qualified therapist and child; between one child and another; between child and family; and between the music and the participants. These relationships are structured and adapted through the elements of music to create a positive environment and set the occasion for successful growth.
Music therapy is a well-established allied health profession similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy. It consists of using music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive, behavioral and/or social functioning. Because music therapy is a powerful and non-threatening medium, unique outcomes are possible.
