A realistic introduction to research and the importance of research questions -- Identifying intriguing topic areas stemming from personal experiences of music, health, and well-being -- Recognizing how beliefs and values about music, health, and well-being shape your research -- Understanding the beliefs that shape our preferences for different types of research -- Integrating contextual influence to develop a feasible project -- Synthesizing personal experiences, beliefs and values, worldview, and contextual influence into a refined research question.
This book aims at providing guidance for music therapy students approaching their first research project. The authors outline a series of hidden influences that shape decisions about what research question to ask. Chapters examine personal experiences with music, health, and well-being; assumptions about why music, health, and well-being fit together in the first place; beliefs about what kinds of research are most powerful; and contextual influences, such as organizational culture, policies, and emerging social movements.--adapted from publisher's description.
