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.
