An overview of music therapy clinical practice in the 21st century, structured around the ways music therapists engage clients in music experiences -- re-creating, composing, improvising and active listening. The text includes 48 case illustrations from 29 clinicians who practice with diverse client populations. These cases demonstrate how the music therapist adapts a method to meet the unique needs and interests of clients. The benefits of these methods are outlined, and representative research is provided to support clinical applications. Ten context examples written by 10 experienced music therapists are included, illustrating the similarities and differences in the roles music therapy may play in treatment. An historical review of the profession is included, providing perspective on the evolution of music therapy as a profession to date. A resource section of professional organizations, peer-reviewed publications, and publishers concludes the text. The text is structured for use by instructors who teach introductory music therapy courses in which the content is presented through an experiential approach; its flexible format is designed to be a good fit for such a course.
