HEALING THROUGH MUSIC


INTRODUCTION

Music therapy is a fascinating concept; artists use it to perfection to help patients


get rid of their health problems. Music artists combine various important facets like emotional
facet, aesthetic, social, spiritual and many more to help patients. This is what is referred to as
the inventive genius. Inventive genius is a concept that appreciates and encourages people to
think out of the box and come up with concepts that would impact and changes the lives of
human beings for the better.
Music therapy improves cognitive functioning and there are no two ways about this, it has been
found that a person who undergoes music therapy starts feeling positive and his cognitive
functioning also becomes better. Music therapy can also improve social skills greatly; this can
have a positive impact on the patient’s life. At times human beings feel lonely and isolated,
music therapy can help them greatly. It is hard for someone who has limited social skills to
make new friends and as a result of which depression can kick in. Music therapy can help such
people greatly.
It has also been found that music therapy can greatly improve the overall quality of life. In
addition to improving social skills, it can also have a positive effect on how a person improvises
and achieves his targets in life. It is an open secret that renowned psychologists speak highly
of music therapy. This once again goes to show its influence on people’s lives. In addition to
this highly acclaimed physicians also encourage people to undergo music therapy so that they
can overcome their problems and put their past behind them.
Individuals with special needs have greatly benefitted from music therapy; it has been clearly
found that they were able to focus better after undergoing music therapy sessions. The elderly
have also profited by being part of the music therapy sessions. Several major hospitals have
started using music therapy and the results have been very encouraging. Patients, who suffer
from cancer, have been significantly helped by music therapists.
Finally, it is very fair to conclude that music therapy has been a great invention. It has helped
hundreds of thousands of people. Cancer patients who had given up hope have been
completely rejuvenated. They have become positive and their lives have been impacted
positively. Music therapy has become increasingly popular and it will keep going from strength
to strength and it will keep revitalizing human beings in the days to come.

HEALING THROUGH MUSIC
LITERATIVE REVIEW
People listen to music to manage their moods, to enhance a workout, to bond with
other people and as a distraction from daily life. Listening to music can provide health benefits
to those suffering from certain conditions, such as chronic back pain, memory loss and mental
disorder.

HEALING THROUGH MUSIC


(Merz, 2015)

The last time I had a mammogram, I got a big surprise — and it was a good one. A string
quartet was playing just outside the doors of the breast imaging center, and my thoughts
immediately shifted from “What are they going to find on the mammogram?” to “Is that Schubert,
or Beethoven?” By the time my name was called, I had almost forgotten why I was there.

The unexpected concert was the work of Holly Chartrand and Lorrie Kubicek, music therapists
and co-coordinators of the Environmental Music Program at Massachusetts General Hospital.
But bringing music to hospital corridors is just a side line for music therapists. The majority of
their time is spent using music to help patients accomplish specific goals, like recovering their
speech after a stroke or reducing the stress of chemotherapy.

Chartrand is a vocalist and graduate of Berklee College of Music. She decided to become a
music therapist when she realized that she could use music to support others just as it had
supported her throughout her life. “The favourite part of my job is seeing how big impact music
can have on someone who isn’t feeling well,” she says.

What is music therapy?

Music therapy is a burgeoning field. Those who become certified music therapists are
accomplished musicians who have deep knowledge of how music can evoke emotional
responses to relax or stimulate people, or help them heal. They combine this knowledge with
their familiarity with a wide variety of musical styles to find the specific kind that can get you
through a challenging physical rehab session or guide you into meditation. And they can find
that music in your favourite genre, be it electropop or grand opera.

Music therapists know few boundaries. They may play music for you or with you, or even teach
you how to play an instrument. On a given day, Chartrand may be toting a tank drum, a ukulele,
or an iPad and speakers into a patient’s room. “Technology gives us so much access to all
kinds of music that I can find and play almost any kind of music you like,” she says.

The evidence for music therapy

A growing body of research attests that that music therapy is more than a nice perk. It can
improve medical outcomes and quality of life in a variety of ways. Here’s a sampling:

Improves invasive procedures. In controlled clinical trials of people having colonoscopies,


cardiac angiography, and knee surgery, those who listened to music before their procedure had
reduced anxiety and a reduced need for sedatives. Those who listened to music in the operating
room reported less discomfort during their procedure. Hearing music in the recovery room
lowered the use of opioid painkillers.

Restores lost speech. Music therapy can help people who are recovering from a stroke or
traumatic brain injury that has damaged the left-brain region responsible for speech. Because
singing ability originates in the right side of the brain, people can work around the injury to the
left side of their brain by first singing their thoughts and then gradually dropping the melody.
Former U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords used this technique to enable her to testify before a
Congressional committee two years after a gunshot wound to her brain destroyed her ability to
speak.

Reduces side effects of cancer therapy. Listening to music reduces anxiety associated with
chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It can also quell nausea and vomiting for patients receiving
chemotherapy.

Aids pain relief. Music therapy has been tested in patients ranging from those with intense
acute pain to those with chronic pain from arthritis. Overall, music therapy decreases pain
perception, reduces the amount of pain medication needed, helps relieve depression, and gives
people a sense of better control over their pain.

Improves quality of life for dementia patients. Because the ability to engage with music
remains intact late into the disease process, music therapy can help to recall memories, reduce
agitation, assist communication, and improve physical coordination.

METHODOLOGY
This part of the research presents the methods to be used in the study. It also describes the
subjects of the study, the instruments used, the procedure of data gathering, and the statistical
treatment of the data.

This study will determine how effective Music therapy is to the people/patients who are
struggling in mental problems or health problems. This study will be possible by asking at least
20 – 30 people (different ages) about this case and in order to gain more knowledge and
information we will interview Music therapist or any experts that has enough knowledge about
Music therapy.

Methods of Research Used

The descriptive, experimental, and survey methods of research will be used in this study.
Descriptive method because it’s main concern is to get more information about Music therapy
and how effective it is to the patients. This study is also an experimental because we are going
to compare two patients with the same health problems but different methods of healing: Music
therapy and unknown therapy.

The researcher will also going to use the survey method, to get the point of views of every
people/patients and therapist on what they think about this Music therapy and how effective it is.

The Respondents or the Subject of the Study

In this study we have two 2 kinds of respondents: the people of the survey method and the other
one is the 2 persons who will the researcher going to use as the subject in the experimental
method.

In the survey method, the researcher will going to ask 20-30 people about this topic. It can be a
survey method or impromptu questions about their opinions to Music therapy and how effective
is it.

In the experimental method, we have 2 subjects with the same health problems (it’s necessary
that the subject has a very serious health problem. Headache is enough) but different methods
of healing: unknown therapy and the music therapy. In this method, the researcher will prove
which method of healing is more effective.

Sampling Design

Convenience sampling will be utilized in this research. Since the researcher is a student then the
researcher will going to use students as its subject. The researcher will interview students, teachers and
with the help of the researcher’s teachers if by chance the researcher will interview experts or music
therapist to gain more information. And for the experiment, the researcher will going to use students as
their subjects.

BEHIND THE PROJECT

This study is a success. At first, I thought that this study is impossible to investigate because it’s
very wide but with a little help of my friend Mr. Google, Friends, Experts it became possible.
Gathering information about this study is can be difficult because it’s hard to find 20- 30
respondents that will be patient enough to answer all the questions. I experience be ignored by
my respondents especially in the experiment method, many decline my request to be one of my
subject but thank goodness there is 2 people who agreed to be respondents. While we are
doing the experiment, Subject 1 (has headache but her treatment is just taking pain killer
medicine) and Subject 2 (has headache also but her treatment is just listening to relaxing
music). I noticed while we are doing the experiment Subject 1 had recover fast but the
headache come back again but subject 2 had recover 3 minutes late than the subject 1 but it
never come back. So it mean, that hearing relaxing music especially the slow and harmonious
one can relieve headaches or migraines. I’m not saying that medicines are not effective they are
effective but there are a lot of people that when they take medicine it has a side effect on them,
it’s either they will vomit or will have a worse headache. I learn that music therapy is not just
going to see a therapist like that but when you are listening to relaxing music and letting yourself
dive in to the waves of notes, you are undergoing music therapy. The reason why it is called
music therapy because music therapy is used to treat people who has brain problems like
Alzheimer’s, migraines, autism and many more. The effectivity of this study can last for a
thousand generations because I believe that all of us are listening to music and most people are
doing this. Of course, there are a lot of preparations here in this study, first, you must be ready
and you must have enough knowledge or information to share with everybody. Second, the
PowerPoint presentation, there’s no other way of creating visual aids. Third, the questionnaires
for the survey and interviews must be related to your topic and you must choose them wisely.
Fourth, the budget for your study, of course if you’re going to interview a therapist or any
experts it’s important to have a thank you gift or any token. Lastly, the time, it’s important to
prepare your time for this study. It’s wrong that you are just going to interview people without
any schedules and appointments especially the therapist is a busy person you should have an
appointment first before anything. There are a lot of preparations but I am thankful that this
study is a qualified success thanks to all those people who helped in my research.
