“Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to actively support people as they strive to improve their health, functioning and wellbeing. Music therapy is the intentional use of music by a university trained professional who is registered with the Australian Music Therapy Association Inc and is bound by a code of ethics that informs their practice. Music therapy is different from music education and entertainment as it focuses on health, functioning and wellbeing” (AMTA, 2014)
