AIM: This quasi-experimental study aimed to assess the effect of executive music therapy (EMT) on the state and trait anxiety levels of patients with psychiatric disorders.

DESIGN AND METHODS: The study sample consisted of 64 patients who were hospitalized in a psychiatric ward in Giresun, Turkey between January and April 2019.

FINDINGS: This study showed that EMT decreased the state anxiety levels of inpatients with psychiatric disorders (P < .05). However, the treatment caused no effect on trait anxiety levels (P > .05).

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: In line with these results, we recommend that EMT should be included in therapeutic nursing interventions in psychiatric ward.
