Publisher's Summary

Music can undoubtedly elevate our spirit, induce an extraordinary reverie, and even compel a move or two. But wouldn't it be a surprise to learn that music can actually be applied therapeutically to treat cognitive, sensory, and motor dysfunctions?

A wealth of research has shown that music can be applied as a form of therapy to retrain and reeducate the injured brain. It is currently being applied in the treatment of traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease, stroke, autism, aphasia, and much besides.

Music is also an effective approach in dealing with children, depression, anxiety, child birth, and the rehabilitation of speech and language.

You will learn....

  • What do music therapy sessions look like?
  • Neuroscience and music therapy
  • Benefits of music therapy in the treatment of depression
  • Music therapy as a medicine
  • Children and music therapy
  • And much more!

This audiobook discusses every facet of music therapy: who can benefit from it; what the therapy sessions look like; its application as medicine; its relationship with neuroscience; and much more. The audiobook also dilates the various techniques employed in neurological music therapy (NMT), ranging from rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS) to melodic intonation therapy (MIT).

intro to music therapy

This book is a great intro to music therapy, it's types and uses. It moves quickly, and wets the appetite for more information.
I did not realize there were so many applications for music therapy and how extensively it can be used! The author presents brief introductions to therapy for all ages from the unborn to the elderly, for many physical conditions from heart problems to stroke rehabilitation, and for mental conditions from childhood behavioral issues to anxiety to Alzheimer's.
This book does not provide how-to, but indicates that one should seek out a properly trained music therapy professional.
This book was worth an hour of my time.

the content was very good but I found it too short

I would like to know more about the content shown in this book. it served well as an introduction but it fell short to get to know a good amount of data about music therapy.
