Music Therapy for Child Patients

Parent Interventions

Child patients undergoing treatment for life-threatening diseases will be immensely benefitted by bedside music therapy according to activities jointly done by Michigan State University (MSU) Community Music School-Detriot and Children’s Hospital of Michigan. The music therapy was tailored to support pain management, relaxation, emotional expression, normalisation, socialisation and distraction for patients and families. Children forget their worries when creatively engaged in the hospital. One child wrote lyrics about what she would do when she got home from the hospital. Another composed a melody about missing her friends. Other young patients sang, strummed, laughed and smiled- a needed respite for their health woes, according to Jody Stark, Music Therapist of MSU.
