Music therapy: For moving and soothing

Posted on: September 20, 2012

A family wedding I attended a few days ago was a tear-jerker and a blast! 

The ceremony started as joyous with a hint of sadness.  The bride’s dad, my uncle, had passed away a few years ago. His absence was sorely missed. He wasn’t there to walk his beautiful daughter down the aisle. 

Her dad was a Led Zeppelen fanatic. 

After the wedding ceremony, the music was cranked up and the tears dried up.  Music can transform a mood in a single beat.   Music therapy is real and effective.  The September 28, 2011 Psychology Today notes that music is engaging.  Music is for moving and soothing.

In events, such an my recent family wedding, music can change the entire atmosphere. 


Zeppelen’s top 15 songs are not too lovey-dovey, however, the memory of the bride’s dad tapping his foot to their tunes brought the house down.  Rock on.
