Music Therapy for Multisensory and Body Awareness in Children and Adults with Severe to Profound Multiple Disabilities: The MuSense Manual
Dear friends, colleagues and readers,
I am delighted to introduce to you this book that I coauthored with another Board Certified Music Therapist, a dear colleague, my former clinical supervisor, and now friend, Roberta S. Adler.
Looking at this title, you may think that this book has nothing to do with your life or work and personally with you. I assure you that, if you happen to read these lines, you will find something in this book that will deeply impact you. Let me tell you
why YOU should buy this book.
If you are a happy client of Rainbow Bridge Music Studio, you will be interested to know that two chapters in this book are based on clinical work completed at Rainbow Bridge Music Studio. When you purchase this book from our website, every penny earned will go towards promotion of Rainbow Bridge Music Studio’s educational philosophy and towards meeting the unique educational needs of our students. If you are a parent of one of our wonderful students, you will get a glimpse into the knowledge necessary to sustain our students’ successes on their musical journeys besides the profound comprehension of musical subject. So, take one for the team and buy this book from our website.
If you are a discerning parent, by the end of the first chapter you will find what this buzz around music education is all about. “Auditory sensory inputs entrenched in music induce strong physiological responses in human bodies because music speaks the language of human physiology…” (p. 46). You will understand how intimately music is connected with the emotional development and neurological processes in the brain of your child. Also, you will be deeply moved by the clinical vignettes and experience a renewed sense of gratitude for simply being in a healthy and adequately functioning body.
Additionally, your teacher (the co-author of the book) can sign the book for you!..
MusicWorks? It sure does! My son Robby is 8 yrs old and has been attending Rainbow Bridge’s music therapy sessions for almost a year now. These sessions have helped Robby to become more aware and in tune (pardon the pun) with others and his surroundings.
