National Music Therapy Month

March is National Music Therapy Month. Please check the Atlantic Association for Music Therapy (AAMT) website for events that may be taking place.

Music Therapy is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an Accredited Music Therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development (CAMT, May 1994).
