that has come to our office because he is suffering and dealing with anxiety
and depression. The first thing we need to understand is what is depression and
what are its side effects. Depression can be classified as feeling sad,
melancholy and unhappy. Most people deal with these emotions at some point in

forms, panic anxiety, social anxiety, phobia anxiety and generalized anxiety.

 Both of these illnesses can cause
sleep problems, nauseas, tingly and cold hands or feet and in the worst of
cases, suicide.

Since we
are trained music therapists we have to understand what music therapy is, every
sound is formed by a vibration. We perceive this vibrations through the
auditive system, skin, bones, belly, etc. The waves from the music are
perceived not only by humans, but are also perceived by animal, plants, and
other living beings. Harmony stimulates our mind with all the different sounds.
Sometimes music can transport us beyond. Music make us feel harmony, happy,
sad, etc. Music can also make us feel better, and change the way of thinking
and seeing the world.

Music
therapy, is used to connect with the patient, helping him to open his mind and
his feelings. It can make him stop thinking about what stresses him and think
about what he likes. The music therapy consists more in playing instruments and
singing than talking with your patient.

Thinking
about music therapy in stress, we can think it is better a receptive music than
an active. Obviously, this can result reassuring if the music is appropriate.
But this has a problem, this can result relaxing during the therapy but what
happens when they go back to their daily life? Well, what happens is that all
the relax we had gotten, disappears. People with stress feel better when they
learn or hear extern music. This can help them to learn how to use their voice
for singing songs to themselves when they feel sad. Here is where music therapy
starts working. Hearing our voice helps us to live the present and also to feel
free.

The first thing we have to
decide in order to treat our patient is what kind of music we want him to
listen to, firstly, we have to decide between 2 types of music: classical period
music and romantic period music. Classicism lasted between 1750 and 1825 and Romanticism
lasting between 1850 and 1900. These periods of music happened nearly at the
same time but are completely different. After looking at both these music style’s
characteristics, we concluded that classicism was the clear winner2.
in the classic period music, the ornamentation was not too excessive, so the
music will help relax our patient, contrary to romantic period music, that
ornamentation was very common, this could further stress our patient. The romantic
period music is commonly used to express emotions, this type of music could
make our patient to remember his wife, this could aggravate his depression. If we
aggravate the depression, he could commit suicide. The following reason is related
with the first one. If we talk about its complexity, the classic period music
is defined while the romantic period music is very complex. As we said this can
produce stress.

The most famous composers of this
period were: Mozart, Haydn, Gluck, J.C. Bach and C.P.E. Bach. There were a lot
of romantic composers: from Germany, Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann were he
most relevant. From France, Berlioz and Fauré. From Italy, Verdi and Puccini. From
Russia, Borodin and Mahler. Finally, from England, Elgar, Grieg and Sibelius.

In conclusion, we are going to
treat our patient with classical music.
