Hospitals as we know them are a relatively recent development in health care. After the two World Wars, volunteers at Veterans hospitals began to play music and sing for patients. Positive responses to this musical support led hospitals to hire musicians directly, and formal music training programs for health care applications began to appear.

The use of Digital Music as a therapeutic tool falls into the realm of behavioral and psychological support services. With persons who are not actively dying, music can be used to stimulate interaction, memory, and affective response. It encourages interaction between listeners and between listeners and the performer.
This active stimulation presumes that the clients are awake and capable of response. It can be used to stimulate energy if the patient is lethargic, or to calm the patient if there is too much energy. Music therapy presumes that a positive change in mood or behavior can be brought about in the listener.
