  • Music therapy : a fieldwork primer / Ronald M. Borczon
    ML 3920 B58 2017
    Writing from over 35 years of experience as a music therapy clinician and educator, the author has provided the field with an invaluable, "hands-on" introduction to field work and practicum experiences. This is the second, updated, and expanded version of the first edition, originally published in 2004. After defining the essential attributes of a music therapist, the author explains the field learning process and the therapeutic process, pointing out the various challenges that students face in their developing years.

    Of particular interest is the section giving advice on how to cope with the inevitable anxiety of leading one's first session in a clinical setting. The book then offers practical suggestions on "how to" (1) use music, 2) verbally process a musical improvisation, (3) deal with difficult clients, (4) collect and report clinical data, and (5) benefit from supervision. Already field-tested by the author with his own students, this companion to field training is an invaluable resource for practicum students, interns, supervisors, educators, and practitioners.

  • Jazz as critique : Adorno and Black expression revisited / Fumi Okiji
    ML 3508 O45 2018

    A sustained engagement with Theodor Adorno, Jazz As Critique looks to jazz for ways of understanding the inadequacies of contemporary life. Adorno's writings on jazz are notoriously dismissive. Nevertheless, Adorno does have faith in the critical potential of some musical traditions. Music, he suggests, can provide insight into the controlling, destructive nature of modern society while offering a glimpse of more empathetic and less violent ways of being together in the world. Taking Adorno down a path he did not go, this book calls attention to an alternative sociality made manifest in jazz. In response to writing that tends to portray it as a mirror of American individualism and democracy, Fumi Okiji makes the case for jazz as a model of "gathering in difference."Noting that this mode of subjectivity emerged in response to the distinctive history of black America, she reveals that the music cannot but call the integrity of the world into question.
