Music as a therapy still awaits complete recognition from many medical authorities. Many doctors and psychiatrists are quite willing to recognize music as a potent agent in relaxing tensions and stimulating activity, but thus far only in too few instances has music been accorded status equivalent to that of the other accepted therapies. In the treatment of some types of mental illness it is the writer's belief music lends itself as a therapy more readily than any other medium.
