IN AND FOR
MUSIC THERAPY

Practice
 Mobile applications may be used to meet a variety of clinical needs in practice, expanding upon the four traditional methods of music therapy (improvisational, re-creative, compositional and receptive) through a range of distinctly digital creative platforms. In addition, mobile apps provide unique elements of accessibility through novel visual, tactile, and even remote ways of engaging in creative expression with clientele.
Advocacy
Music therapists could use apps to advocate for their clients by recommending certain apps based on those used in session, providing feedback to app developers to make apps more accessible, affordable. In addition, clients could use apps to advocate for themselves through communication apps, requesting certain apps they can use to engage in healthy coping strategies, and apps to connect to others through collaborative music-based projects.

The Mobile Application Cranny was compiled by Jesse Asch-Ortiz, Gabby Banzon, and Rebecca West.
