Flute Accordion or Clarinet is a refreshing addition to music therapy literature. With instrumental history, case vignettes and very handy chapter summaries it truly showcases how each instrument can be used to greatly enhance the music therapy experience. It has certainly inspired me to increase the use of my flute in sessions!

This is a fascinating book. The use by music therapists of instruments other than the keyboard is central to much clinical practice, but as yet no comprehensive discussion of the implications and possibilities of such work has been published. This book fills that space admirably; its detailed accounts of the characteristics of instruments and instrumental families are complemented by a wealth of case material and illustrations which bring clinical events excitingly to life. Students and long established therapists alike will find plenty here to enliven their practice.
