Music therapy is an allied health service which addresses individualized (typically non musical) goals and is facilitated by a credentialed professional. Board certified music therapists (MT-BCs) are trained in research based approaches through bachelors, masters and PhD programs, and must engage in ongoing continuing education. Music can easily cause overstimulation or elicit negative emotions, and must be used with care! To find a MT-BC near you (USA), visit CBMT.org

Then as she responded positively to that, I also play for her “The Sound Of Music” on DVD to inspire her even more. I believe 100% in the positive benefits of Music/Art Therapy for Hospital patients as my mom was very depressed and had two surgeries in one week. With the help of Doctor/Family/Hospital Team, there can be more successful recoveries.
