Music Therapy to Manage Asthma Symptoms in Young Indigenous People in an Urban Setting

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 34 Issue 3 (May/June 2010)

Abstract: This pilot project looked at whether there was an impact on young people's asthma when they participated in lessons that involved controlled breathing techniques, didgeridoo playing (males) or singing (females). Whilst there was difficulty with retention, the overall results showed a positive outcome. The intervention is one that could be developed further to deliver not only asthma management programs but to address other health issues.
