Readings on Music Therapy Theory

Author : Kenneth E. Bruscia

Readings on Music Therapy Theory
E-ISBN : 9781937440145


Qty:       

This massive volume of over 1612 pages is a comprehensive, historic collection of the most significant theoretical writings on music therapy, as originally written by major thinkers in the field. With 38 readings, each consisting of 1-8 writings of each author, the book provides a panoramic view of the myriad ways of thinking about music therapy that have evolved since its inception. Giving voice to 28 authors, this unprecedented book presents general and specialized theories, in many different orientations and writing styles, on various topics, geared to students and professionals at different levels and with different interests and specializations.

Readings 1 and 2 of the book are meant to prepare the reader for thinking theoretically, and dealing with philosophical questions. The rest of the readings are arranged in alphabetical order by author so as to avoid interpreting or contextualizing the writings in any way. Most of the theoretical writings included here were originally published in the last 12 years, however a few date back to the 1990s, and some go back even further.
