Music Therapy for Senior Citizens


“Music has been interwoven with societal evolution since time immemorial. There is no culture on earth that doesn’t have its music. Of late, music has transcended the boundaries of art and pleasure, to which it was oft relegated, and has shown strong potential as a healing agent for the brain.”

Recent studies show that for senior citizens, depression can be dealt with through music therapy.

Music has already proven to be therapeutic in the case of people suffering from mental disorders, of all ages. In the case of patients afflicted with dementia, music has been used to calm them down and manage severe, aggressive behavior.

Elderly patients often suffer from loneliness, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain (even without any apparent physical disorder). As they undergo physiological changes, they often suffer mental and physical pain without any explanation.

Music works as an active therapeutic agent that reduces pain, depression, anxiety, mood swings, and loneliness. Other than conventional methods of treatment, music can be an equally potent medium to alleviate the physiological problems of the elderly.

Classical music, as well as certain instruments such as piano and violin, can soothe frayed nerves in general, and, for the elderly, can prove to be a blessing.

Music therapy, therefore, needs to be introduced into the fold to treat the elderly and give an extra caring touch to the elderly.

Elderly people are often in the need of extra care and concern, and music therapy is a good way to make a beginning.
