"Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to actively support people as they strive to improve their health and wellbeing. Music therapy is the intentional use of music by a university trained professional who is registered with the Australian Music Therapy Association Inc. Registered music therapists draw on an extensive body of research and are bound by a code of ethics that informs their practice." (Australian Music Therapy Association).
