The aim of this study was to find the effect of six weeks of music therapy intervention on skill performance and sports competition anxiety among handball players. A total of 20 university handball players were selected for the conduct of this study. The subjects were then divided into two groups, viz., experimental group (i.e. music therapy group) and control group. A 2X2 repeated measures ANOVA revealed a significant difference in experimental group and control group in nine-meter throw, dominant hand speed pass, overhead pass, and SCAT score. The study concludes that a six week of music therapy is helpful in improving the performance of handball players.
