Editor Magee (music therapy, Temple U.) offers this primer on using music as a therapeutic tool. The book begins with background on the theory and practice, followed by characterization of musical therapeutic devices and indications. Music therapy for children is paid special attention, including in neonatal intensive care, special needs education, autism, and sensorimotor disability settings. Adult applications discussed include treatment of brain injury, psychiatric care, cancer care, and use of assistive devices to help disabled adults engage music as a meaningful art form. The final section addresses future directions, largely focused on helping people with challenging conditions to seize agency and reinforce a competent identity through the medium of music.
