Beginning in the Renaissance and following through the Classical and Baroque eras, the Italian Ospedali aided in the spread and practice of Italian music while benefitting all who participated. In this paper, there is a discussion of the economic, social and cultural reasons these institutions developed, how music training was taught and how it affected the orphans, as well as other institutions that have similar goals today. This integrative review uses information from numerous sources to describe and demonstrate the positive impact music can have on at-risk populations.
