Music Therapy: Music For Healing

Hey Sand Stars

As you may or may not know; I’ve done some research into music therapy i.e. utilising music or sound to alleviate the conditions in patients with physiological or mental ailments. I’ve been in touch with one of the authors of one of the first books on music therapy and have done my own little investigations into music to help better the condition of a patient.

Please note that I am not at all certified medically or claim to have all knowledge in this area. I am a performer, but my goal is to make people feel good with my music and, coming from a family of medical professionals, it was only a matter of time before I was interested in using music to heal 🙂

If we all think about it, it doesn’t take much to make us feel better: usually bopping along to Coldplay, falling asleep to Chopin or dancing the night away to Armin Van Buuren makes us feel awesome if we’re needing a pick-me-up! There is a science behind certain music making us feel good. It stems from both a psychological/conscious level to a more complex physiological level and differs from case to case.

I’ll go into more detail as I compose a few pieces with the idea of music for healing in mind 🙂 My plan is for a full-length album for children and adults, utilising whatever I’ve learnt and my own inspiration. The goal is to create music that will be soothing for children (infants to toddlers) and music that will be calming for their parents and those adults looking for an outlet to relax. I’m looking forward to sharing more as the music happens!
