Music as one of the expressive therapies, consisting of a process in which
a music therapist uses music and its forms – physical, emotional, mental, social,
aesthetic, and spiritual – to help improve health in several domains, such as mental
functioning, motor skills, emotional development, social skills, and quality of life, by
using music experiences such as free improvisation, singing, and listening to,
discussing, and moving to music to achieve treatment goals.
Music therapists and educators use music and its forms to help improve health in many skill areas. Each child at the Neve Hanna Children’s Home has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
