In the 19th century, many doctors and musicians in Britain and the United States were pushing for the development of music therapy. For example, in the UK, some choirs travel to major hospitals in London to serve patients. In the United States, doctors use music in the operating room to distract the patient.

The 20th century was the outbreak of music therapy. Music therapy was recognized as a formal profession during World War I and World War II.
