Music therapy, as defined by yours truly:
Music that, by individual taste and selection, is good for the mind, heart, and soul, restoring balance to thoughts, body systems, attitude, and outlook.
Music regenerates the mind and body, contributes to creativity, or both.

A love of music
I’m very particular about what I like and spend time listening to, but my musical tastes cover an atypically wide range of genres: rock, symphonic metal, classical, new age, electronic, dance, world music, Celtic, theatre, folk, ethnic, Spanish guitar, music of the Andes–to name the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
My wealth is in my health: music has helped me through a lot.
Today’s music selection is not relaxation music. It’s what I call active listening music that feeds and hydrates a person.
Hoobastank’s 2015 rehearsal of Disappear is rejuvenating. Usually, I prefer to just listen to music, but in this case, it is meaningful to see the band in a rehearsal setting and watch how each musician plays his part. Doug Robb’s voice is incredible. The vocal harmony, guitars, and drums are a real treat. Since this is an extended play, we get an extra minute of instrumental after 5:00.
My thanks to Hoobastank for posting this video on YouTube.
