Guidelines in stroke rehabilitation recommend the use of a multidisciplinary approach. Different approaches and techniques with music are used in the stroke rehabilitation to improve motor and cognitive functions but also psychological outcomes. In this randomized controlled pilot trial, relational active music therapy approaches were tested in the post-acute phase of disease. Thirty-eight hospitalized patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke were recruited and allocated in two groups. The… 
Music‐supported therapy in the rehabilitation of subacute stroke patients: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Patients' intrinsic motivation to engage in musical activities was associated with better motor improvement in the MST group, and MST as an add‐on treatment showed no superiority to conventional therapies for motor recovery.
Nuanced effects of music interventions on rehabilitation outcomes after stroke: a systematic review
TLDR
Focusing on high to moderate level evidence, this review highlighted that rhythmic auditory stimulation has a positive effect on gait and balance; that receptive music therapy improves mood as well as some cognitive functions; and that there is not enough evidence to determine the effectiveness of active music therapy and melodic intonation therapy.
MUSIC THERAPY FOR STROKE PATIENTS : A SYSTEMATIC
TLDR
Gait exercises, combined with rhythmic auditory stimulation, provide statistically significant improvement, compared with gait exercises alone, according to the results of the meta-analysis.
The Feasibility and Acceptability of Neurologic Music Therapy in Subacute Neurorehabilitation and Effects on Patient Mood
TLDR
The data suggest that a one-day-per-week NMT post in subacute neurorehabilitation was feasible, acceptable, and helpful, supporting patient engagement in rehabilitation exercises, mood, and motivation.
Functional electrical stimulation+iPad-based music therapy for upper limb recovery after stroke: Study protocol for a mixed methods randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This randomised controlled trial will examine the effect of Functional Electrical Stimulation with iPad-based music therapy on upper limb recovery and wellbeing outcomes for stroke survivors.
Music therapy for stress reduction: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
A multilevel meta-analysis showed that music therapy showed an overall medium-to-large effect on stress-related outcomes, and larger effects were found for clinical controlled trials compared to randomized controlled trials (RCT), waiting list controls instead of care as usual (CAU) or other stress-reducing interventions, and for studies conducted in Non-Western countries compared to Western countries.
The Effectiveness of Music Therapy on Hand Function in Patients With Stroke: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Music-supported therapy could be a useful treatment for improving hand function and activities of daily living in patients with stroke, especially for patients within 6 months after stroke, however, the low certainty of evidence downgrades confidence to practice in hospital.
"Music Makes My Old Heart Beat": A Randomised Controlled Study on the Benefits of the Use of Music in Comprehensive Care for Institutionalised Older Adults.
TLDR
This study demonstrates the effects of a planned music-based intervention on several health- and well-being-related outcomes and has important applications regarding the use of music as a complement in therapeutic interventions with elderly people.
A systematic review of rehabilitation interventions to prevent and treat depression in post-stroke aphasia
TLDR
This study found some interventions that may improve depression outcomes for those with mild depression or without depression in post-stroke aphasia and adapt the best evidence within a stepped psychological care framework.

Moving with music for stroke rehabilitation: a sonification feasibility study
TLDR
A novel musical sonification therapy especially designed to retrain gross‐motor functions after stroke is presented and may be a promising therapy for impairments after stroke.
Music supported therapy promotes motor plasticity in individuals with chronic stroke
TLDR
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), this study observed a clear restitution of both activity and connectivity among auditory-motor regions of the affected hemisphere and confirmed MST as a viable intervention to improve motor function in chronic stroke individuals.
Music therapy for acquired brain injury.
TLDR
The results suggest that rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS) may be beneficial for improving gait parameters in stroke patients, including gait velocity, cadence, stride length and gait symmetry.
Neural Reorganization Underlies Improvement in Stroke‐induced Motor Dysfunction by Music‐supported Therapy
TLDR
It is seen that music‐supported therapy leads to marked improvements of motor function after stroke and that these are accompanied by electrophysiological changes indicative of a better cortical connectivity and improved activation of the motor cortex.
Music listening enhances cognitive recovery and mood after middle cerebral artery stroke.
TLDR
Recovery in the domains of verbal memory and focused attention improved significantly more in the music group than in the language and control groups, and music listening during the early post-stroke stage can enhance cognitive recovery and prevent negative mood.
Improvement of spontaneous language in stroke patients with chronic aphasia treated with music therapy: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The current trial highlights the possibility that the combined use of MT and SLT can lead to a better result in the rehabilitation of patients with aphasia than SLT alone.
Non-pharmacological interventions for the improvement of post-stroke activities of daily living and disability amongst older stroke survivors: A systematic review
TLDR
No evidence was found to support use of any non-pharmacological approach to benefit older stroke survivors’ disability, and it is recommended future studies explore such interventions exclusively in older adult populations and improve methodological and outcome reporting.
Systematic Review on Acupuncture for Treatment of Dysphagia after Stroke
TLDR
The result showed that the acupuncture group was better than control group in terms of efficacy rate of dysphagia after stroke, and the combining result of those researches using blind method was more strong in proof.
Using musical instruments to improve motor skill recovery following a stroke
TLDR
This innovative therapeutic strategy is an effective approach for the motor skill neurorehabilitation of stroke patients by inducing an auditory–sensorimotor co-representation of movements in 20 stroke patients without any previous musical experience.
The evaluation of music therapy process in the intersubjective perspective: the music therapy rating scale. A pilot study
TLDR
This study presents a tool to evaluate the progression of the relationship between the patient and the therapist during music therapy sessions, developed from an intersubjective framework and from an improvisational music therapy technique.
