9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Priscilla Stilwell on August 28, 2008
Format: Paperback
My first (and probably only) music therapy course used this book as it's text. I am a musician, so I'm coming from that perspective. However, there is surprisingly little information on here as far as music skills. The assumption is that those skills are developed outside of this particular class.

The author gets into the specifics of a wide range of disabilities, disorders and conditions. The way the brain processed music is presented in a thorough, yet (relatively) simplistic way. It's a detailed study, and not just a bunch of fun facts, so you have to be ready to take the time to research.

The questions at the end of the chapters provided an excellent review for each class, and the book was well organized. I would certainly recommend both the book, as well as a Music Therapy class to anyone with any interest.

This book is good for reviewing and studying for the music therapy exam after you've finished your program. I skimmed most of it, and passed the exam with flying colors. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to solidly prepare for the CBMT exam.

Very textbooky, dealing with hypothetical institutional group settings. I was hoping for something to help with one on one real people.
