Music therapy can support mental, intellectual, physical, emotional or social aspects of wellbeing, by using music within a therapeutic relationship to achieve meaningful goals.

Music therapy is an evidence-based allied health profession where Registered Music Therapists use music-based activities to actively support people with their health, functioning and wellbeing. Music therapy uses music and the relationship formed through musical experiences to support individuals and their families.

Music therapists also use a variety of non-musical therapeutic techniques, and work with a range of other therapists to collectively support the individual to reach their goals.
