      This chapter explores the potentials of music as a social determinant of health and resource for psycho-social well-being. Music is encompassed within a socio-ecological definition of health, and from public health perspectives, music promotes well-being through its social participation and community engagement. This chapter offers two case studies, where qualitative and quantitative data attest that participating in music activities can increase well-being from public health perspectives.
