Music therapy boosts moods of young patients

Music Therapy

Last week, Children's Mercy celebrated Music Therapy Week with activities including visits from the Kansas City Symphony and Rockin Rob.

Throughout the year, the Music Therapy Program at Children's Mercy provides music specifically planned for each child and family's needs by a trained professional.

Exposure to music in the hospital setting is a great way to help children relax, and to make the hospital more normal and comfortable. Music therapy can also help a child learn and grow.
