This new book introduces the term musical care: the role that music - music listening as well as music-making - plays in supporting any aspect of people's developmental or health needs. For example physical and mental health, cognitive and behavioural development, and interpersonal relationships. It also:
- provides interdisciplinary insight into how musical care is understood and undertaken during different stages of the life course
- offers a variety of perspectives from practitioners and researchers
- ranges through the entire life course and reflects on the role of musical care at each stage
