Overview

This resource explores fascinating new avenues in music therapy. The author discusses connections between music therapy and theorizes that every little nuance found in nature is part of a dynamic system in motion. She also shows how everything is inter-related and addresses how music is able to touch people in a deep and consequentially healing way. This complex interaction results in what the author terms "Soulmaking", or the ability of music to heal what makes us vital, whole, alive, and balanced. Crowe draws upon her 25 years of experience as a music therapist to flesh out her theory of soulmaking, providing concrete examples of the effect music can have on a wide range of patients with diseases as varied as Alzheimer's and Down's Syndrome. She also addresses the four facets of human functioning: mind, body, emotion, and spirit and shows how music can touch them all.
