Music Intervention

A music intervention is any use of music to promote relaxation, increase engagement or socialization, and overall well-being. Music interventions range from groups offered by a Music Therapist to independent listening on iPods or other electronic devices. Beyond the entertainment value, there's growing evidence that listening to personalized music can also help stimulate seemingly lost memories, manage stress, stimulate positive interactions, shift mood, stimulate hunger, facilitate physical activity and coordination, provide socialization and reconnection with others, help manage pain/discomfort and even help maintain some cognitive functioning which all contribute to a person’s quality of life.
