This book explains the procedures, challenges and benefits of using music therapy in an educational setting. It is well written and full of practical applications from multiple contributors from specialist and mainstream school... it would be an invaluable resource both for someone aspiring to be a music therapist and for someone already in the profession.
For teachers who have an interest in music therapy, this will be an interesting resource book, with a number of case studies providing interesting information about the ways in which this form of therapy can address, the needs of individual children... It is an interesting and thought provoking book which offers the reader new insights into music therapy.
