How Music Helps in Music Therapy and Everyday Life Why is music so important to most of us? How does music help us both in our everyday lives, and in the more specialist context of music therapy? This book suggests a new way of approaching these topical questions, drawing from Ansdell's long experience as a music therapist, and from the latest thinking on music in everyday life. Vibrant and moving examples from music therapy situations are twinned with the stories of 'ordinary' people who describe how music helps them within their everyday lives. Together this complementary material leads Ansdell to present a new interdisciplinary framework showing how musical experiences can help all of us build and negotiate identities, make intimate non-verbal relationships, belong together in community, and find moments of transcendence and meaning. How Music Helps is not just a book about music therapy. It has the more ambitious aim to promote (from a music therapist's perspective) a better understanding of 'music and change' in our personal and social life. Ansdell's theoretical synthesis links the tradition of Nordoff-Robbins music therapy and its recent developments in Community Music Therapy to contemporary music sociology and music studies. This book will be relevant to practitioners, academics, and researchers looking for a broad-based theoretical perspective to guide further study and policy in music, well-being, and health.

Introduction to Music Therapy Research An introductory overview of how research has been conceived and implemented in music therapy over the last several decades. The book was designed for those who are beginning their studies in music therapy research, and it is especially well-suited for use as an accompaniment to classroom instruction. Seventeen of the chapters were excerpted from Music Therapy Research (3rd Edition), a much larger volume of 68 chapters that gives considerable detail on numerous topics and sub-topics. In addition, three chapters (15, 16, 17) were specially written to provide a birds-eye view of some of the chapters that were not included, and in particular, those chapters in the larger book that examined the numerous methodological designs and approaches used in objectivist, interpretivist and other types of music therapy research.

Where Music Helps This book explores how people may use music in ways that are helpful for them, especially in relation to a sense of wellbeing, belonging and participation. The central premise for the study is that help is not a decontextualized effect that music produces. The book contributes to the current discourse on music, culture and society and it is developed in dialogue with related areas of study, such as music sociology, ethnomusicology, community psychology and health promotion. Where Music Helps describes the emerging movement that has been labelled Community Music Therapy, and it presents ethnographically informed case studies of eight music projects (localized in England, Israel, Norway, and South Africa). Taken together these case studies theoretically inform a discussion of how an understanding of extra-musical processes is necessary for any understanding of musical processes.
