Each song is available to download for easy use in practice settings. Included in the collection are: greetings songs, songs for building self-awareness and emotional expression; songs for special occasions and rhythmic chants to inspire creative movement and social connectedness.

Reviews and Endorsements

A treasure trove of accessible, varied and engaging songs, sensitively written for specific clinical situations by practicing music therapists who are also creative musicians. Music therapists and music therapy students will enjoy using the songs as they are written, but also as an inspiration and starting point to improvise freely to meet the needs of their clients.
Amelia Oldfield, Emeritus Professor, Anglia Ruskin University; clinical music therapist for 40 years

This therapeutic songbook provides an abundance of creative resources for music therapists and music educators to integrate and adapt in music-making experiences with people across the lifespan. The intentional construction of each song reflects the reverence these therapists hold for each person they welcome into musicking. They create a musical framework that is equally aesthetically inviting and therapeutically intentional.
Lindsay Markworth, MMT, MT-BC, Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapist, Twin Cities Music Therapy Services
