Integrative music support groups utilize music to encourage positive changes in mood and overall well-being. These sessions may include music listening, discussion, interpretation, creative expression, song-writing, or other music interventions. Some of the documented benefits of music therapy include improved self-esteem and self-confidence, decreased feelings of anxiety and depression, increased motivation and focus, increased ability to identify and articulate emotions, and stronger connections to other people.
