Do you have to be musical to benefit from Music Therapy?
No! ...and yes, let me explain. All humans are intrinsically musical. So you have to be human to benefit from music therapy. If you are a person who feels like you can’t carry a tune in a bucket or keep the beat to save your life, you can still benefit. Don’t allow your “feelings” of inadequacy in music ability keep you from attempting music based therapy. You can benefit by allowing a music therapist to apply their skills and trusting your body’s natural response to music. Again, all of us are naturally born musical, so all can benefit from music therapy.
