The Ontology of Music in Music Therapy  [cached]
Rudy Garred
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2001,
Abstract: The focus will be on the concept of dialogue. My choice of this concept is grounded on the assumption that it is indeed central and appropriate to apply to the field of music therapy, because it may be considered to be in close accordance with inherent values in music therapy as a practice. The term dialogue has had a broad application within several fields, from theology, to sociology, psychology, and education, to arts and the humanities (Friedman, 1996). Used as a foundational concept the term may serve to illuminate dynamics of relation. This I believe may be very relevant with regards to the many sided and complex question of the role and status of music in music therapy.

Abstract: En este trabajo se hace una amplia revisión de aquellos estudios experimentales relacionados con la efectividad de la utilización de la musicoterapia, tanto en un contexto de educación especial como en los hospitales. La mayor parte de los estudios revisados aportan pruebas a favor de la hipótesis de que la utilización de la musicoterapia en ni os con necesidades educativas especiales tiene efectos positivos en distintos aspectos, como son: reducción de la ansiedad, mejora del desarrollo emocional, mayor equilibrio psicofísico y emocional, y aumento del nivel de comunicación e interacción social. En un contexto hospitalario, la musicoterapia se ha mostrado eficaz principalmente como forma de reducir la ansiedad, y parcialmente, para calmar el dolor, aunque en este último aspecto, los datos son contradictorios. Desde un punto de vista metodológico, los estudios revisados adolecen de serios problemas, necesitándose, por este motivo, un mayor rigor experimental en los estudios que se realicen en este campo. Mientras tanto, no se podrán enunciar resultados concluyentes sobre la efectividad de la música como herramienta terapéutica en estos contextos. Palabras clave: Musicoterapia, efectos musicoterapia, educación especial, ansiedad. In this paper we present a wide review of those experimental studies related to the efficiency of the utilization of the music therapy both in a context of special education and in the hospitals. Most of the checked studies contributes evidence in favour of the hypothesis of the utilization of the music therapy in children with learning disabilities has positive effects in different aspects, as they are: reduction of the anxiety, improvement of the emotional development, bigger psycophysical and emotional balance, and increase of the level of communication and social interaction. In a hospitable context, the music therapy has proved to be effective principally as a tool to reduce the anxiety and, partially, to calm the pain, though in this aspect the information is contradictory. From a methodological point of view, the checked studies suffer from serious problems, being needed, for this motive, a bigger experimental rigor in the studies that are carried out in this field. Meanwhile, conclusive results will not be able to be enunciated on the efficiency of the music as therapeutic tool in these contexts. Key words: Music therapy, therapeutic effects of music, learning disabilities, anxiety.
Working as a Music Therapist in Mexico  [cached]
Esther Murow
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2002,
Abstract: Music therapy in Mexico is only beginning. Though there is a lot of interest in what it is and on its effect on health and personal growth, there are also a lot of misconceptions about what it really is. I have encountered that one of the obstacles for the growth of music therapy in Mexico is what I call the myths about what it is. I am sure some of them are well known to my colleagues around the world: if you play a music tape the client gets well, or just get some percussion instruments and have the children play and you are doing music therapy. I think one of the worst misconceptions here is that some people believe there is no need for professional training and education to practice music therapy. Being a music therapist has been a real struggle not to mention trying to educate health and education professionals about music therapy, and that it is a real profession in other Countries! On the other hand, there are many musicians and health professionals who are very interested in music therapy and its use.

Approaches : Music Therapy & Special Music Education , 2010,
Abstract: Note from the interviewer: It is my pleasure to initiate the interview section of Approaches: Music Therapy & Special Music Education, by presenting here my interview with Pauline Etkin which was given at the Nordoff Robbins Centre in London, UK on the 5th of January 2009.Based on Etkin’s experience of being the Chief Executive Officer of Nordoff Robbins, in addition to her rich diverse experience in the field of music therapy on a practical and policy level; this interview focuses on the development of policies and practices in music therapy – an issue that will hopefully be of interest especially for countries, such as Greece, where music therapy is in its initial stage. The interview was recorded, transcribed verbatim and then edited. Some footnotes have also been added to the original text in order to provide some useful additional information and suggest some sources through which the reader can find further information with regards to the issues discussed in the interview.I would like to warmly thank Professor Helen Odell-Miller who, based on her personal major contribution to the development of music therapy in the UK, offered her support in the editing process of this interview.This interview will hopefully encourage further constructive dialogue and reflections on related topics, and inspire the conduction of interviews with other significant figures in music therapy both on national and international level.
Carrying out the Principle of Horizontal Connectedness and Professional Justification in the Planned Curriculum for Kindergartens in the Field of Music Education  [PDF]
Olga Denac
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.617191
Abstract: The article presented the results of a study which included 159 pre-school teachers from all over Slovenia. The aim of the research was to determine whether teachers in the process of operative planning of the educational process account for the principles of horizontal integration and professional justification. We analyzed the planned curriculum in terms of structure, activities, goals, principles and contents. The results of the research show that the music education has been losing professional autonomy within the field of art, as kindergarten teachers only partially carry out individual principles of the curriculum in the planning of the educational process.
Lullabies and Play songs: Theoretical Considerations for an Early Attachment Music Therapy Intervention through Parental Singing for Developmentally At-Risk Infants  [cached]
Marianne Bargiel
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2004,
Abstract: Following an overview of the literature on the musical predispositions of the newborn and on the development of attachment, this article elaborates a theoretical rationale on which is proposed a model of early intervention with parental singing. The author first looks at the links between regulation of affect and attachment, also taking a look attachment pathologies and how they inform us about healthy attachment. Then, the functions of Infant-directed speech (langage parental), and also by extension, Infant-directed singing (chant parental) are looked at in terms of their developmental impacts over the baby's regulation of affect. The suggested music therapy program is presented as a clinical articulation of a usually natural behaviour within parent-child dyad. Considering the importance of early intervention in order to prevent the crystallisation of dysfunction or its contamination over the whole development of the young child, this intervention model aims at recreating, preferentially with the parent's participation, the favorable relational conditions for a resumption or a continuation of the developmental sequence for the baby whose attachment is at risk because of endogenous or environmental reasons.

Reporting on Music Therapy in Kenya  [cached]
David Otieno Akombo
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2001,
Abstract: here are approximately 500,000 refugees living in Kenya today, with approximately 20,000 children attending formal education in about twenty refugee schools. These children often show severe emotional distress that is observable through consistent evaluation. The children's hopes need to be restored and their mental health rejuvenated. Several Kenyan music teachers and paramedics including myself came together in August 1998, and thought about new ways and means of helping these children. One way we thought was worth trying was music therapy. This we thought could be achieved by incorporating a music therapy component into their co-curricular (after school) activities. We thought singing and dancing after school could be a good stepping stone for the provision of therapy to the kids in the refugee camps.

Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2001,
Abstract: Welcome to the inaugural issue of a new international music therapy journal, electronically published and with free access. We're sure you have noticed the growing interest in the field of music therapy. The number of music therapists around the world is increasing every year. Diverse contexts for music therapy work grow too. Though music has been practiced as a healing art in Indigenous societies for hundreds of years, contemporary professional music therapy has grown from a Western enterprise to one with a very broad foundation of approaches internationally.
