Approaches used in music therapy that have emerged from from the ﬁeld ﬁeld of educatio education n includ includee Orﬀ-Sch Orﬀ-Schulw ulwerk erk (Orﬀ), Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Eurhythmics, and Kodaly. Models that developed directly out of music therapy are Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT), Nordoﬀ-Robbins and the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music. Music therapists may work with individuals who have behavioral-emotional disorders. To meet the needs of this population, music therapists have taken current psychological theories and used them as a basis for diﬀerent types of music therapy. Diﬀerent models include behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. One therapy model based on neuroscience, called “neurological music therapy” (NMT), is “based on a neuroscience model of music perception and production, and the inﬂuence inﬂuence of music music on functi functional onal changes changes in non musical brain and behavior behavior functions.” functions.” In other words, NMT studies how the brain is without music, how the brain is with music, measures the diﬀerences, and uses these diﬀerences to cause changes in the brain through music that will eventually aﬀect the client non-musically. As one researche researcher, r, Dr. Thaut, Thaut, said: “The brain brain that engages in music is changed by engaging in music.” NMT trains motor responses (i.e. tapping foot or ﬁngers, head moveme movement, nt, etc.) to better help clients clients develo develop p motor skills that help “entrain the timing of muscle activation patterns”.
Music therapists are found in nearly every area of the helping professions.

Music therapy comes in two diﬀerent forms: active and receptive. In active therapy, the therapist and patient activel tivelyy participa participate te in creating creating music music with instrume instruments, nts, their their voice, or other objects. This allows for the patient to be creative and expressive through the art of music. Receptive therapy takes place in a more relaxed setting where the therapist plays or makes music to the patient who is free to draw, listen or meditate. Usually the therapist determines the method unless speciﬁcally requested by the patient.

Paul Nord Paul Nordoﬀ oﬀ,, a Juilliard School graduate graduate and Profe Professor ssor of Music, was a gifted pianist and composer who, upon seeing disabled children respond so positively to music, gave up his academic career to further investigate the possibility bility of music music as a means for therap therapy. y. Dr. Clive Robbins,, a special educator, partnered with Nordoﬀ for over bins 1
17 years in the exploration and research of music’s effects on disabled children- ﬁrst in the United Kingdom, and then in the USA in the 1950s and 60s. Their pilot projects included placements at care units for autistic children and child psychiatry departments, where they put programs in place for children with mental disorders, emotional disturbances, developmental delays, and other handicaps. Their success at establishing a means of communication and relationship with autistic children at the University of Pennsylvania gave rise to the National Institutes of Health’s ﬁrst grant given of this nature, and the 5year study “Music Therapy Project for Psychotic Children Under Seven at the Day Care Unit” involved research, publication, training and treatment. Several publications, including Therapy in Music for Handicapped Children, Creative Music Therapy , Music Therapy in Special Education, as well as instrumental and song books for children, were released during this time. Nordoﬀ and Robbins’s success became known globally in the mental health community, and they were invited to share their ﬁndings and oﬀer training on an international tour that lasted several years. Funds were granted to support the founding of the Nordoﬀ Robbins Music Therapy Centre in Great Britain in 1974, where a one-year Graduate program for students was implemented. In the early eighties, a center was opened in Australia, and various programs and institutes for Music Therapy were founded in Germany and other countries. In the United States, the Nordoﬀ-Robbins Center for Music Therapy was established at New York University in 1989.
dren. Gertrude Orﬀ was asked to develop a form of therapy based on the Orﬀ Schulwerk approach to support the emotional development of patients. Elements found in both the music therapy and education approaches include the understanding of holistic music presentation as involving word, sound and movement; the use of both music and play improvisation as providing a creative stimulus for the child to investigate and explore; Orﬀ instrumentation, including keyboard instruments and percussion instruments as a means of participation and interaction in a therapeutic setting; and lastly, the multisensory aspects of music used by the therapist to meet the particular needs of the child, such as both feeling and hearing sound.
Corresponding with the attitudes of Humanistic psychology, the developmental potential of the child- as in the acknowledgement of their strengths as well as their handicaps, and the importance of the therapist- child relationship are central factors in Orﬀ Music Therapy. Theoretical foundations are also inﬂuenced by the strong emphasis on social integration and the involvement of parents in the therapeutic process found in social paediatrics. Knowledge of developmental psychology puts into perspective how developmental disabilities inﬂuence the child, as do their social and familial environments. The basis for interaction in this method is known as responsive interaction, in which the therapist meets the child at their level and responds according to their initiatives, combining both humanistic and developmental psychology philosophies. Involving the parents in this type of interaction, The Nordoﬀ-Robbins approach, based on the belief that by having them participate directly or observe the thereveryone is capable of ﬁnding meaning in and beneﬁtting apist’s techniques, equips the parents with ideas of how from musical experience, is now practiced by hundreds of to interact appropriately with their child, thus fostering a therapists internationally.

Music educator and therapist Helen Lindquist Bonny (1921 - May 25, 2010) developed an approach inﬂuenced by humanistic and transpersonal psychological views, Developed by Gertrude Orﬀ at the Kindezentrum known as the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery in MuMünchen, is another approach known as Orﬀ Music sic, or GIM.

volves relaxation techniques, identiﬁcation and sharing of personal feeling states, and improvisation to discover the self, and foster growth. The choice of music is carefully selected for the client based on their musical preferences and the goals of the session. Usually a classical piece, it must reﬂect the age and attentional abilities of the child in length and genre, and a full explanation of the exercises must be oﬀered at their level of understanding.  The use of guided imagery with autistic children has been found to decrease stereotypical behaviours and hyperactivity, increase attention and the ability to follow instructions, as well as increase self-initiated communication, both verbal and non-verbal.
Assessment and interventions
As with any type of therapy, the practice of Music Therapy with children must uphold standards of conduct and ethics, agreed upon by national and provincial associations such as the Canadian Association for Music Therapy. In part with this, formal assessment is crucial for understanding the child – their background, limitations and needs, as well as to create appropriate goals for the process and select the means of achieving them. This serves as the starting point from which to measure the client’s progression throughout the therapeutic process and to make adjustments later, if necessary. Similarly to how assessments are conducted with adults, the music therapist obtains extensive data on the client including their full medical history, musical (ability to duplicate a melody or identify changes in rhythm, etc.) and nonmusical functioning (social, physical/motor, emotional, etc.). The assessment process is then carried out in formal, informal, and standardized ways. The following are the most common methods of assessment:  •
Interviews with Clients and/or Family Members
Structured or Unstructured Observation
Assessment and interventions
Reviewing of Client Records Standardized Assessment Tests
Information gathered at the music therapy assessment is then used to determine if music therapy is indicated for the child. The therapist then formulates a music therapytreatment plan, which includes speciﬁc short-term objectives, long-term goals, and an expected timeline for therapy. Music therapy interventions used with children can fall into two categories. The ﬁrst, Supportive active therapy, is product- oriented and can included rhythm activities such as body percussion (stomping feet, clapping hands, etc.), singing songs which re-inforce nonmusical skills, awareness and expression, or movement to music (as simple as
marching to the beat, as complex as structured dances). The second area is called Insight music therapy which is process-oriented. Activities could include song-writing, active listening and reacting, or auditory discrimination activities for sensory skill development. Music therapy for children is conducted either in a one-on-one session or in a group session. The therapist typically plays either a piano or a guitar, which allows for a wide variety of musical styles to suit the client’s preferences. The child is usually encouraged to play an instrument adapted to his or her unique abilities and needs.  These elements are designed to improve the experience and outcome of the therapy.
Prenatal music therapy
Music Therapy can play an important role during pregnancy. At just 16 weeks, a fetus is able to hear their mother’s speech as well as singing. Through technologies, such as ultrasound, health care professionals are able to observe the movements of the unborn child responding to musical stimuli. Through these fetal observations, we see that the baby is capable of expressing its needs, preferences, and interests through movements in the womb. At the beginning of the second trimester, the ear structure is fully matured. By this time, the fetus will begin to hear not only maternal sounds, but also vibrations of instruments. Prenatal music therapy has three main beneﬁts.  1. Prenatal Stress Relief : Pregnant women may experience high levels of stress which can negatively aﬀect the baby. This will cause the body will release Norepinephrine and Cortisol hormones which will increase blood pressure and weaken the immune system of both mother and child. High levels of cortisol exposure in early development can increase the likelihood of the child later having anxiety, mental retardation, autism, and depression. Music therapists use music to elevate the stress threshold of an expectant mother which helps her to maintain a relaxed state during labour and birthing process. During a music therapy session, the mother is guided to listen to her internal rhythms, as well as listing to the movements and reactions of the fetus in response to her voice and music. This technique is useful in helping reduce the mother’s level of stress, and prepare her for the birth of her child. 2. Maternal-Fetal Bonding: Communication between the mother and fetus is essential during pregnancy. One way of strengthening the bond between the two is through music therapy. Music stimulation helps to develop the fetus’s nervous system, structurally and functionally. The unborn child especially prefers the voice of their mother. The most eﬀective way to enhance communication is through singing.
Lullabies are the most popular songs sung by mothers. Singing lullabies is a wonderful way for mothers to express their love and have the baby become familiarized with their mother’s melodies and intonations which will provide them a sense of security when they are born, because it will feel just like how they were in the womb. Electronic voice phenomena studies have shown that the father’s voice engages the fetus from feet to the abdomen - which will lead the baby to start walking at a younger age. The mother’s voice engages the fetus from waist to head which will strengthen the baby’s neck and upper limbs. Not only does prenatal singing beneﬁt the fetus, it also help produce endorphins that automatically reduce the perception of pain and help relax breathing. A fetus can show preference for music; observations have shown the fetus’s movements are gentle when listening to soothing music, and comparatively, where there are dissonances included in the music, their movements are bigger and much more rhythmic, such as rolling. The fetus would be comforted by hearing slow-pace passages of Baroque music (Vivaldi and Handel) and lullabies sung by their mother. 3. Prenatal Language Development: Music is said to be the unborn child’s beginning of language learning. It can be consider as a pre-linguistic language that prepares the Auditory Sensory System to listen, combine, and produce language sounds. The fetus learns through the voice of their mother, not only from speech but songs. The sound is received by the baby through bone conduction when the mother speaks. The singing voice is said to have a wider range of frequencies than speech. Prenatal sounds are important during the prenatal period because it forms the basis of future learning and behaviour. 2.2.2
Music therapy for premature infants
Music therapy has been shown to be very beneﬁcial in stimulating growth and development in premature infants. Premature infants are those born at 37 weeks or less gestational stage. They are subject to numerous struggles, such as abnormal breathing patterns, decreased body fat and muscle tissue, as well as feeding issues. The coordination for sucking and breathing is often not fully developed, making feeding a challenge. The improved developmental activity and behavioural status of premature infants when they are discharged from the NICU, is directly related to the stimulation programs and interventions they beneﬁted from during hospitalization, such as music therapy. Music is typically conducted by a musical therapist in Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU), with ﬁve main techniques designed to beneﬁt premature infants; 1. Live or Recorded Music : Live or recorded music
has been eﬀective in promoting respiratory regularity and oxygen saturation levels, as well as decreasing signs of neonatal distress. Since premature infants have sensitive and immature sensory modalities, music is often performed in a gentle and control environment, either in the form of audio recordings or live vocalization, although live singing has been shown to have a greater aﬀect. Live music also reduces the physiological responses in parents. Studies have shown that by combining live music, such as harp music, with the Kangaroo Care, maternal anxiety is reduced. This allows for parents, especially mothers to spend important time bonding with their premature infants. Female singing voices are also more aﬀective at soothing premature infants. Despite being born premature, infants show a preference for the sound of a female singing voice, making it more beneﬁcial than instrumental music. 2. Promote Healthy Sucking Reﬂex : By using a Paciﬁer-Actived Lullaby Device, music therapists can help promote stronger sucking reﬂexes, while also reducing pain perception for the infant. The Gato Box is a small rectangular instrument that stimulates a prenatal heartbeat sound in a soft and rhythmic manner that has also been eﬀective in aiding sucking behaviours. The music therapist uses their ﬁngers to tap on the drum, rather than using a mallet. The rhythm supports movement when feeding and promotes healthy sucking patterns. By increasing sucking patterns, babies are able to coordinate the important dual mechanisms of breathing, sucking and swallowing needed to feed, thus promoting growth and weight gain. When this treatment proves eﬀective, infants are able to leave the hospital earlier. 3. Multimodal Stimulation and Music : By combining music, such as lullabies, and multimodal stimulation, premature infants were discharged from the NICU sooner, than those infants who did not receive therapy. Multimodal stimulation includes the applications of auditory, tactile, vestibular, and visual stimulation that helps aid in premature infant development. The combination of music and MMS helps premature infants sleep and conserve vital energy required to gain weight more rapidly. Studies have shown that girls respond more positively than boys during multimodal stimulation. While the voice is a popular choice for parents looking to bond with their premature infants, other eﬀective instruments include the Remo Ocean Disk and the Gato Box. Both are used to stimulate the sounds of the womb. The Remo Ocean Disk, a round musical instrument that mimics the ﬂuid sounds of the womb, has been shown to beneﬁt decreased heart rate after therapeutic uses, as well as promoting healthy sleep patterns, lower respiratory rates and improve sucking behavior.
Assessment and interventions
4. Infant Stimulation : This type of intervention uses musical stimulation to compensate for the lack of normal environmental sensory stimulation found in the NICU. The sound environment the NICU provides can be disruptive; however, music therapy can mask unwanted auditory stimuli and promote a calm environment that reduces the complications for high-risk or failure-to-thrive infants. Parent-infant bonding can also be aﬀected by the noise of the NICU, which in turn can delay the interactions between parents and their premature infants. But music therapy creates a relaxed and peaceful environment for parents to speak and spend time with their babies while incubated.
times chosen by the client, or by the music therapist based on the clients reciprocation to the music. Music has many calming and soothing properties that can be used as a sedative in rehabilitation. For example, a patient with chronic pain may decrease the physiological result of stress, and draw attention away from the pain by focusing on music. Music has the ability to associate physiological changes in the body and elicit physiological responses such as pulse rate, respiration rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension. Music may also stimulate a calming eﬀect of the cardiovascular system.

When having the child actively participate with an instrument, it is especially important for the therapist to provide them with an instrument that they can readily and easily use. Clients with limited physical abilities may express frustration when they are not able to control their environment. The ability to employ and operate a musical instrument provides them a sense of relaxation and accomplishment. Instruments must be selected to provide immediately successful experiences. Certain adaptions of the instruments may be required in order for the people to manipulate them. For example, a drumstick’s handle should be manipulated to be more prominent for those clients that may have a weak grip. Electric music-making devices have been adapted to ﬁt the clients limited but existing movements, strength, and abilities. Electronic devices, such as the SoundBeam and the Wave Rider-reada variety of small movements made by the clients and converts the movements into electronic musical information. The devices are programmed to create easy, yet pleasing notes and sounds in coordination to the participants’ movements. It is also crucial for the client to be aware that music making is simply a modality for rehabilitation and that their wellness is not dependent on their existing musical skills. It provides children with an outlet of expression that they may have lacked in the past or due to present circumstances. By accomplishing the production of musical sounds despite their weaknesses and disabilities, it encourages the client and relieves their anxiety that they may acquire at the thought of playing musical instrument without experience. By using such adaptive music devices, it grants client’s the ability to create sounds that are originally expressive and allows them to experience aﬃrmation –a feeling of capability to control ones own environment- an ability they may not be familiar with.
to also increase communication attempts, increase focus and attention, reduce anxiety, and improve body awareness and coordination. Since up to 30 per cent of children with autism are nonverbal and many have diﬃculty understanding verbal commands music therapy becomes very useful as it has been found that music can improve the mapping of sounds to actions. So by pairing music with actions, and with many hours of training the neural pathways for speech can be improved. Child-appropriate action songs would be like playing the game “peek-ka-boo” or “eeny meeny miney mo” with a musical accompaniment, usually a piano or guitar. Children with autism are also prone to more bouts of anxiety than the average child. Short sessions (15 – 20 mins) of listening to percussive music or classical music with a steady rhythm have been shown to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and temporarily decrease anxiety-related behaviour. Music with a steady 4/4 beat is thought to work best due to the predictability of the beat. Target behaviours such as restlessness, aggression and noisiness can also be aﬀected by the use of music therapy. Weekly sessions ranging for ½ hour to 1 hour during which a therapist plays child-preferred melodies such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and engages the child in quiet singing increases socially acceptable behaviour such as using an appropriate volume when speaking. Studies also suggest that playing one of the child’s favorite songs while the child and therapist both play the piano or strum chords on a guitar can increase a child’s ability to hold eye contact and share in an experience due to their enjoyment of the therapy.
Musical improvisation during a one on one session has also been shown to be highly eﬀective with increasing 2.2.4 Music therapy and children with autism joint attention.

Music therapy has also been recognized as a method
for children with autism. Music therapy helps stabilize moods, increase frustration tolerance, identify a range of emotions, and improve self-expression along with much more. The visual and auditory sensory system is responsible for interpreting sounds and images. With autistic children, if a sound or image is unpleasant the child may not have the ability to express itself, which makes it diﬃcult for a therapist, parent, etc. to interpret. Music engages the brain in both sub-coritcal and neo-cortical levels, which means it is not critical to ‘think’ while listening to music when hearing the notes and sounds. Music therapy, in the topic of austism’s sensory interpretation, provides repetitive stimuli which aim to “teach” the brain other possible ways to respond that might be more useful as they grow older.
Referrals and assessments
Adolescents Mood disorders
Referrals and assessments
While many adolescents may listen to music for its therapeutic qualities, it does not mean every adolescent needs music therapy. Many adolescents go through a period of teenage angst characterized by intense feelings of strife that are caused by the development of their brains and bodies. Some adolescents develop more serious mood disorders such as major clinical depression and bipolar disorder. Adolescents diagnosed with a mood disorder may be referred to a music therapist by a physician, therapist, or school counselor/teacher. When a music therapist gets a referral, he or she must ﬁrst assess the patient and then create goals and objectives before beginning the actual therapy. According to the American Music Therapy Association Standards of Clinical Practice assessments should include the “general categories of psychological, cognitive, communicative, social, and physiological functioning focusing on the client’s needs and strengths…and will also determine the client’s response to music, music skills, and musical preferences”  The result of the assessment is used to create an individualized music therapy intervention plan.

Music therapy may also focus on improving quality of life and building self-esteem, a sense self-worth, and conﬁdence. Improvements in these areas can be measured by a number of tests, including qualitative questionnaires like Beck’s Depression Inventory, State and Trait Anxiety Inventory, and Relationship Change Scale.  Eﬀects of music therapy can also be observed in the patient’s demeanor, body language, and changes in awareness of mood.
According to a 2009 Cochrane review some music may reduce heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure in those with coronary heart disease. Music does not appear to have much eﬀect on psychological distress. “The quality of the evidence is not strong and theclinical significance unclear”. Research indicates that listening to music, whether a Mozart concerto or a song from the popular music charts, has been found to lower blood pressure, improve heart rate variability and can help to de-stress.

Speciﬁcally, playing wind instruments strengthens oral and respiratory muscles, sound vocalization, articulation, and improves breath support. Symbolic Communication Training Through Music is also an important technique in playing instruments in music therapy, because this makes communication (verbally and non verbally) improved in social situations. Most importantly, is that music provides a time cue for the body to remain regulated.  Making music is also important for people of all ages because it causes motivation, increases “psychomotor” activity, causes an individual to identify with a group (in group music), regulates breathing, improves organizational skills, and increases coordination. Though more research needs to be done to ascertain the eﬀect of music therapy on adolescents with mood disorders, most research has shown positive eﬀects.
tive in improving focus and attention, and in decreasing negative symptoms like anxiety and isolation. The following sections will discuss the uses and eﬀectiveness of music therapy in the treatment of speciﬁc pathologies. 4.2.1
Music has been shown to aﬀect portions of the brain. One reason for the eﬀectiveness of music therapy for stroke victims is the capacity of music to aﬀect emotions and social interactions. Research by Nayak et al. showed that music therapy is associated with a decrease in depression, improved mood, and a reduction in state anxiety. Both descriptive and experimental studies have documented eﬀects of music on quality of life, involvement with the environment, expression of feelings, awareness and responsiveness, positive associations, and socialization.  Additionally, Nayak et al. found that music therapy had a positive eﬀect on social and behavioral outcomes and showed some encouraging trends with respect to mood. More recent research suggests that music can increase a patient’s motivation and positive emotions. Current research also suggests that when music therapy is
used in conjunction with traditional therapy it improves success rates signiﬁcantly. Therefore, it is hypothesized that music therapy helps a victim of stroke recover faster and with more success by increasing the patient’s positive emotions and motivation, allowing him or her to be more successful and feel more driven to participate in traditional therapies. Recent studies have examined the eﬀect of music therapy on stroke patients when combined with traditional therapy. One study found the incorporation of music with therapeutic upper extremity exercises gave patients more positive emotional eﬀects than exercise alone.  In another study, Nayak et al. found that rehabilitation staﬀ rated participants in the music therapy group more actively involved and cooperative in therapy than those in the control group. Their ﬁndings gave preliminary support to the eﬃcacy of music therapy as a complementary therapy for social functioning and participation in rehabilitation with a trend toward improvement in mood during acute rehabilitation.
ing program that occurred ﬁfteen times over three weeks, in addition to traditional treatment. These participants were trained to use both ﬁne and gross motor movements by learning how to use the piano and drums. The other half of the patients received only traditional treatment over the course of the three weeks. Three-dimensional movement analysis and clinical motor tests showed participants who received the additional music therapy had signiﬁcantly better speed, precision, and smoothness of movement as compared to the control subjects. Participants who received music therapy also showed a signiﬁcant improvement in every-day motor activities as compared to the control group. Wilson, Parsons, & Reutens looked at the eﬀect of melodic intonation therapy (MIT) on speech production in a male singer with severe Broca’s aphasia. In this study, thirty novel phrases were taught in three conditions: unrehearsed, rehearsed verbal production (repetition), or rehearsed verbal production with melody (MIT). Results showed that phrases taught in the MIT condition had superior production, and that compared to rehearsal, eﬀects of MIT lasted longer.
Current research shows that when music therapy is used in conjunction with traditional therapy, it improves rates of recovery and emotional and social deﬁcits resulting from stroke. A study by Jeong & Kim examined the impact of music therapy when combined with traditional stroke therapy in a community-based rehabilitation program. Thirty-three stroke survivors were randomized into one of two groups: the experimental group, which combined rhythmic music and specialized rehabilitation movement for eight weeks; and a control group that sought and received traditional therapy. The results of this study showed that participants in the experimental group gained not only more ﬂexibility and wider range of motion, but an increased frequency and quality of social interactions and positive mood.
Another study examined the incorporation of music with therapeutic upper extremity exercises on pain perception in stroke victims. Over the course of eight weeks, stroke victims participated in upper extremity exercises (of the hand, wrist, and shoulder joints) in conjunction with one of the three conditions: song, karaoke accompaniment, and no music. Patients participated in each condition once, according to a randomized order, and rated their perceived pain immediately after the session. Results showed that although there was no signiﬁcant diﬀerence in pain rating across the conditions, video observations revealed more positive aﬀect and verbal responses while performing upper extremity exercises with both music and karaoke accompaniment.

In this experiment, researchers recruited stroke patients without prior musical experience and trained half of them in an intensive step by step train-
therapy. Like many of the other disorders mentioned, some of the most common signiﬁcant eﬀects are seen in social behaviors, leading to improvements in interaction, conversation, and other such skills. A meta-study of over 330 subjects showed music therapy produces highly signiﬁcant improvements to social behaviors, overt be-
haviors like wandering and restlessness, reductions in agitated behaviors, and improvements to cognitive defects, measured with reality orientation and face recognition tests. As with many studies of MT’s eﬀectiveness, these positive eﬀects on Alzheimer’s and other dementias are not homogeneous among all studies. The eﬀectiveness of the treatment seems to be strongly dependent on the patient, the quality and length of treatment, and other similar factors.

Other studies have provided insight into the physiological interactions between music therapy and depression. Music has been shown to decrease signiﬁcantly the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, leading to improved aﬀect, mood and cognitive functioning. A study also found that music led to a shift in frontal lobe activity (as measured by EEG) in depressed adolescents. Music was shown to shift activity from the right frontal lobe to the left, a phenomenon associated with positive aﬀect and mood.
Usage by region Africa
Research has shown that in many parts of Africa during male and female circumcision, bone setting, or traditional surgery and bloodletting, lyrical music related to endurance has been used to reduce anticipated pain, therapeutically. In 1999, the ﬁrst program for music therapy in Africa opened in Pretoria, South Africa. Research has shown that in Tanzania patients can receive palliative care for life-threatening illnesses directly after the diagnosis of these illnesses. This is diﬀerent from many Western countries, because they reserve palliative care for patients who have an incurable illness. Music is also viewed differently between Africa and Western countries. In Western countries and a majority of other countries throughout the world, music is traditionally seen as entertainment whereas in many African cultures, music is used in recounting stories, celebrating life events, or sending messages. 
in Bergen includes 3 professors and 2 associate professors, as well as lecturers and PhD students. The centre in Bergen has18 staﬀ, including 2 professors and 4 associate professors, as well as lecturers and PhD students. Two of the ﬁeld’s major international research journals are based in Bergen: Nordic Journal for Music Therapy and Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy. Norway’s main contribution to the ﬁeld is mostly in the area of “community music therapy”, which tends to be as much oriented toward social work as individual psychotherapy, and music therapy research from this country uses a wide variety of methods to examine diverse methods across an array of social contexts, including community centres, medical clinics, retirement homes, and prisons.
Music therapy has existed in its current form in the United States since 1944 when the ﬁrst undergraduate degree program in the world was begun at Michigan State University and the ﬁrst graduate degree program was established at the University of Kansas. The American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) was founded in 1998 as a merger between the National Association for Music Therapy (NAMT, founded in 1950) and the American Association for Music Therapy (AAMT, founded in 1971). Numerous other national organizations exist, such as the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, NordoﬀRobbins Center For Music Therapy, and the Association for Music and Imagery. Music therapists use ideas from diﬀerent disciplines such as speech and language, physical therapy, medicine, nursing, and education.
A music therapy degree candidate can earn an undergraduate, master’s or doctoral degree in music therapy. Many AMTA approved programs oﬀer equivalency and certiﬁcate degrees in music therapy for students that have completed a degree in a related ﬁeld.

The current credential available is MT-BC. To become board certiﬁed, a music therapist must complete a music therapy degree from an accredited AMTA program at a college or university, successfully complete a music therapy internship, and pass the Board Certiﬁcation Examination in Music Therapy, administered through The Certiﬁcation Board for Music Therapists. To maintain the credential, either 100 units of continuing education must be completed every ﬁve years, or the board exam must be retaken near the end of the ﬁve-year cycle. The units claimed for credit fall under the purview of The Certiﬁcation Board for Music Therapists. North Dakota, Nevada and Georgia have established licenses for music therapists. In the State of New York, the License for Creative Arts Therapies (LCAT) incorporates the music therapy credentials within their licensure.

Music has been used as a healing implement for centuries.  Apollo is the ancient Greek god of music and of medicine. Aesculapius was said to cure diseases of the mind by using song and music, and music therapy was used in Egyptian temples. Plato said that music aﬀected the emotions and could inﬂuence the character of an individual. Aristotle taught that music aﬀects the soul and described music as a force that puriﬁed the emotions. Aulus Cornelius Celsus advocated the sound of cymbals and running water for the treatment of mental disorders. Music therapy was practiced in biblical times, when David 6.5 United Kingdom played the harp to rid King Saul of a bad spirit.

 cf. The Anatomy of Melancholy , Robert Burton, subsection 3, on and after line 3480, “Music a Remedy": “But to leave all declamatory speeches in praise of divine music, I will conﬁne myself to my proper subject: besides that excellent power it hath to expelmany other diseases, it is a sovereign remedy against  despair and melancholy, and will drive away the devil himself. Canus, a Rhodian ﬁddler, in  Philostratus, when Apollonius was inquisitive to know what he could do with his pipe, told him, 'That he would make a melancholy man merry, and him that was merry much merrier than before, a lover more enamoured, a religious man more devout.' Ismenias the Theban, Chiron the centaur, is said to have cured this and many other diseases by music alone: as now they do those, saith  Bodine, that are troubled with St. Vitus’s Bedlam dance.”
