Furthermore, music therapy is a growing field of health care using music as a therapeutic tool. Many hospitals take on music therapists in order to help with mental and physical illness.

My favorite music always reminds me of my memories. Even when I feel sad, music offers me consolation. One day I was very depressed about my new life in New York.

The music, one of my favorites makes me feel better and help me to gain energy when I am emotionally and physically exhausted.
