Playin' in the Band: A Qualitative Study of Popular Music Styles as Clinical Improvisation

Playin' in the Band: A Qualitative Study of Popular Music Styles as Clinical Improvisation
E-ISBN : 9781937440558


This is Volume 3 of the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Monograph Series. The text and embedded video files illustrate the remarkable changes in a disabled young man over the course of seven years in music therapy. The study details how he develops from being able to sustain fleeting moments of active musical participation to improvising musically in an organized and expressive manner for an entire session. The book traces his development on the drums, guitar, and piano as he acquires the ability to play them in blues, jazz, country, and rock music. Interwoven with the story of his development are extended discussions on the therapeutic and musicological theory supporting improvisational work in these various groove-oriented forms of music. (2002, 144  pages, E-book only).
