  2. This is very interesting. I've heard of music therapy but not in the sense of actually having the patients perform the music. Three harpist recently did a concert for our retired sisters in Washington. The three women are involved in music therapy, particularly with patients who are dying. I thought it was interesting about having patients use an ipod. I have a small MP3 player and I've used it when I'm flying. I know it calms me down because I'm fearful on the plane. I also use music very often for prayer.

  3. Considering that stress is a proven contributor to cancer formation, anything to reduce that stress would have to help.

  4. I too have heard of music therapy - when my grandson was little - there was a program called Babies Can't Wait - they had music therapy - someone came over to the house and played music -to help the GS talk - he was a late bloomer.
