A music therapy session is a lot like a counseling session. The only difference is that in a music therapy session, the patient plays an instrument and sings along to create positive progress in the treatment.

Research has proven that music therapy is effective in treating several conditions, such as:
- Depression and anxiety disorder
- Other mental health issues like bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger syndrome and anorexia nervosa.

You can expand the reach of how wonderful music therapy is by doing a podcast. However, the podcast must be 1 hour long. Include 15 minutes of music and 45 minutes of conversation around the topic.
Music can include any style you like, and can be edited to fit your podcast length.
Pre-record the episode with your co-hosts and put it on iTunes and any other podcast directory you choose. Post it on your blog and share it wherever you want to.
