is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. Music therapists do a global assessment of a child’s emotional well-being, physical health, social functioning, communication abilities, and cognitive skills through responses to music and the playful use of musical instruments. Music therapists design sessions for individuals and groups based on the patient’s needs. These sessions incorporate receptive music listening, improvisation, imagery, song writing and more. The unpressured, creative and playful environment helps children relax, reduce their pain, feel comforted and stay in touch with all that they are beyond their illness. Music therapy is integrated into their treatment planning with evaluations and follow-up.
