Music therapists offer a unique, holistic viewpoint and have the skills help a person or team of people, integrate ‘who the person wants to be’ with ‘who they are currently.’ Potential music therapy clients need not have music experience, but do benefit from music therapy if they know a lot about music already. The job of the therapist is to find them ‘where they are’ and offer a rich musical environment to help form, and work towards, a goal.
