Abstract

Music therapy has been proven to help people in many capacities, from education to the medical field. This study will focus on the effects of music therapy concerning children in elementary school as well as infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This project will research and describe what music therapy is and what it encompasses. It will then describe several forms of healing for children in elementary schools, such as coping skills for depression, anxiety, autism, as well as therapy for the specially abled child. Additionally, this project will report on research findings of the benefits that music therapy has in the medical field, more specifically, the NICU. This project is designed to raise awareness of how music provides healing to infants and children. With this study, we hope to provide evidence of music therapy as healing based on recent research, therefore presenting a strong argument as to why children need music in their lives.
