A recent study shows that music can affect negatively, especially background noise. But, it also depends on the music you hear. Thus, finding the right tune and consulting with the therapist before the therapy is a must. 
Sleeping with music on is not necessarily bad. But using headphones or earphones can cause serious damage, as they are not only uncomfortable but can also hurt your ear canal.
The foremost danger would be, not everyone understands music and delicate emotions. Especially, if the person had any brain injury, or has any neurologic disorder. It can cause confusion and overstimulation.
