Music Emergencies

Music Emergencies

I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely had times in my life where I’ve had ‘music emergencies,’ times where I needed music therapy right at that moment. Music heals. Music is universal.

“It works because, in some way, everyone relates to music,” Jantz said. “Singing with someone when you feel anxious, or expressing emotions through songwriting, are more than just casual activities in music therapy. Therapists always have specific goals in mind, such as helping patients overcome a fear.¬†Therapists are conscious of rhythm, tempo, texture and melody of the music as clients express themselves. In a hospital setting such as Jantz’s, such components of music can also distract a patient who is in pain.”
