How is music a form of therapy? Scholars explore the topic using the fourth and final lesson from the Changing One's Tune: A Music Therapy STEM series. Learners explore the relationship between music and the mind and describe the power of music as a positive tool for mental well-being. They also create and participate in a therapeutic and improvisational musical experience.
