Abstract—Music has played an important role as an art throughout human history, to reduce stress and to soothe the mind. In addition, the researcher stated that even in ancient times, music was an important source for physical, psychological and sociological development of human nature. Currently, a considerable amount of researchers state that music is one of the most important devices which is used by several therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists as a therapeutic intervention. The aim of this work is to analyse music therapy as a therapeutic intervention method in children. Firstly, this intervention method will be defined, and then the main techniques and principles of music therapy will be discussed. Finally strengths and limitations of this intervention method will be discussed by analysing some academic evidence from a variety of research studies.
