Music Therapy

Can singing "This Little Light of Mine" really help somebody relearn to speak, after being shot in the head through Broca's area? How can music-based interventions improve Alzheimer's patients' functioning and quality of life? Could music be a viable alternative to drugs or other types of therapy in treating mood disorders? How does music affect development in children?
