Where Ockelford's book enriches the field is in his emphasis on research into what is meant by developmentally relevant musical activities for teachers to use. * Elaine Streeter, University of York * perhaps a better name for this text would be, Music for Children and Young People with and without Complex Needs. This text, as is, is recommended to anyone engaged in music education. It is my hope, as the author has proposed in his conclusion. that what will follow will be increasingly more practical coherence to the theoretical foundation he has laid in Music for Children and Young People with Complex Needs. * Alice-Ann Darrow, Psychology of Music 38(1) 2010 *
