  2. 2. Introduction • Jeff Davis of Long Beach, California, works as a safety officer with Beacon Energy Services, Inc. When not working toward a safer work environment, Jeff Davis plays in a band that raises money for music therapy programs that benefit military veterans in Long Beach. Music therapy has long been recognized as a beneficial part of an interdisciplinary treatment plan for veterans. Utilizing music for therapeutic purposes has a long history in military hospitals. After World War I and World War II, musicians would often visit hospitals hoping to provide relief for the soldiers who were recovering from physical and emotional trauma. Medical staff recognized the tremendous benefit of these concerts and looked for ways to increase patients’ exposure to music.
  3. 3. Music Therapy • This led to the creation of several training programs for music therapists. Music therapy benefits veterans by promoting relaxation and helping with pain management. It can also help participants to forge new, meaningful relationships, reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety, and promote memory and cognition. Many also enjoy the therapeutic effects of the creative process. By expressing their emotions through music, many veterans are able to share their experiences in ways that would not be possible with traditional therapies.
