Evaluate an individual’s needs and musical preferences in addition to his/her cultural background and spiritual beliefs. Patients are engaged in a therapeutic process that speaks to their unique needs and preferences. They may benefit from actively engaging in music therapy interventions such as song-writing, singing, music-making, improvisation, making musical choices or moving to music. Patients may also benefit by receiving the music through active music listening, music focused relaxation, music and imagery or live music entertainment. Music therapy provides actively dying patients and their families with music that supports a peaceful death.

Knowledge and Skills Required:
The professionally trained music therapist integrates the patients’ musical preferences with music therapy approaches that are designed to meet their needs and celebrate their strengths. Music therapists draw from psychological models to incorporate counseling techniques with music experiences to provide support both verbally and musically. Music therapists readily adapt their approaches to support patients as they transform from higher levels of functioning into death. Music therapists play an integral role on the interdisciplinary team because they address a wide variety of needs including physical symptoms and psycho-social and spiritual issues.
Tools/Technology Required:
Music therapists are trained to use a variety of instruments depending on patients’ preferences and needs. These may include guitar, harp, keyboard, auto-harp, dulcimer, tone chimes, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers and other rhythm instruments.
