Ways Music Care Works for You

Ways Music Care Works for You

This is a non-exhaustive list of ways that music care – self-care using music – works for you. We chose these examples to illustrate the vast opportunity for music care outside of clinical practice. They apply equally well to individuals, families, teams, and entire organizations.

 

For completeness, we have also provided links for “supportive music,” sometimes branded as “palliative music” or “life music care” in its own category, and “music therapy.”

 

For proof of music care, there are thousands of years of anecdotal evidence to review, and at least one hundred years of clinical research to support your quest, and, best of all, your own self-evident results.

 

Beyond supportive/background music, these examples invite intention, purpose, and skillful use…no therapist needed. Want to know more? Ask us how!
