  1. A lot of persons assume this can be a subject that may be totally based mostly on personalized opinion, I’ve to disagree. I desire to personally thank you for taking the time to write how you experience concerning this topic, and making it public to everyone people trying at your web site.

      Thanks for your comment. The current research on the influence of music on the brain is quite astounding, and does indeed help support the “subjectivity” that is sometimes associated with music therapy practice. Several MTSA members are currently at the International Association of Music and Medicine conference ( and we are learning so much; the quality of research being done is remarkable.
      Thank you again for your encouragement.
