Music therapy involves the planned and controlled use of music to improve the quality of life of the person. It has a definite place in the education and training of mentally retarded persons. Various behaviours and concepts can be taught through music, improving both social behaviour and eventually learning ability. Rhythmic movement to music can also improve physical health and music can have a calming influence in stressful situations.
