Con: This is still a very new form of therapy and does not have the proper reasearch to convince the large amount of skeptics. Music therapy does not have a the strongest repuation and will need to continue in order to have increase their treatments and patients level as well has further proving its success rate.

Maria Drohan's insight:

I loved this article, it was very interesting. I found it very interesting reading about the characteristics of music that are also very important and effective in music therapy such as the tempo, rhythm and volume of the music. This can be carefully controlled in order to maximize a huge positive effect that music can have on the brain weather conscious or unconscious.

Maria Drohan's insight:

Music has been known to reduce stress and help with anxiety however, I didnt realise to what extent it aids several mental diseases such as Parkinsins. Rythm has always played a major role when it comes to music. Parkinsons patient struggle with controlling their hand, leg movment etc... therefor working with these patients to maintain a steady rythm will eventually help them gain more control. This is a great way to incorporate music to help others!!
