Maryville University has offered education in music therapy since 1972, providing a long history and appreciation of the field. Music therapy is the use of music for the restoration, maintenance and improvement of mental and physical health. Music therapists use the inherent qualities of music to affect healing and change, and to influence physical, emotional and cognitive responses of individuals of all ages with behavioral, social, learning or physical disabilities.
