Research

A randomised controlled trial involving 251 children and young people found music therapy improved self-esteem and lower depression, with particular benefits for young people:

"for participants aged 13 and over in the intervention group, the child SSIS communication was significantly improved. . . Overall, self-esteem was significantly improved and depression scores were significantly lower at week 13." (Porter et al. 2017)
