Why music therapy

The beginnings of music therapy can be found in the learning's of ancient school, biblical sources, shaman rituals, theological literature. Music therapy can be found in all cultures, during the entire history of human civilization, until today. From its very beginnings, it followed the development of medicine and psychiatry.
