Advanced methods of music therapy practice : the Bonny method of guided imagery and music, Nordoff-Robbins music therapy, analytical music therapy, and vocal psychotherapy / Nicki S. CohenML 3920 C64 2018eb
Analytical Music Therapy, The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music, Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, and Vocal Psychotherapy are commonly studied and in conjunction with music therapy. This book examines the development of these four advanced methods of music therapy practice in relation to each other, and explores their impact on the development of the music therapy profession. Based on extensive new research and interviews with leading practitioners of the advanced methods, the book describes the differences, similarities, relationships, and trends between them, compares linearly the development of the music therapy profession primarily in the 20th century with the development of the four advanced methods, and speculates on the future of these advanced methods in relation to the future of music therapy as a profession.
Flip the script : European hip hop and the politics of postcoloniality / J. Griffith RollefsonML 3918 R37 R66 2017
Hip hop has long been a vehicle for protest in the United States, used by its primarily African American creators to address issues of prejudice, repression, and exclusion. But the music is now a worldwide phenomenon, and outside the United States it has been taken up by those facing similar struggles. Flip the Script offers a close look at the role of hip hop in Europe, where it has become a politically powerful and commercially successful form of expression for the children and grandchildren of immigrants from former colonies.
Through analysis of recorded music and other media, as well as interviews and fieldwork with hip hop communities, J. Griffith Rollefson shows how this music created by black Americans is deployed by Senegalese Parisians, Turkish Berliners, and South Asian Londoners to both differentiate themselves from and relate themselves to the dominant culture. By listening closely to the ways these postcolonial citizens in Europe express their solidarity with African Americans through music, Rollefson shows, we can literally hear the hybrid realities of a global double consciousness.
Under my thumb : songs that hate women and the women who love them / edited by Rhian E. Jones and Eli DaviesML 82 U63 2017
Women write about their experiences of loving music that doesn't love them back - a feminist 'guilty pleasures'.e - a kind of feminist guilty pleasures.
In the majority of mainstream writing and discussions on music, women appear purely in relation to men as muses, groupies or fangirls, with our own experiences, ideas and arguments dismissed or ignored. But this hasn't stopped generations of women from loving, being moved by and critically appreciating music, even - and sometimes especially - when we feel we shouldn't.
Under My Thumb: Songs that Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them is a study of misogyny in music through the eyes of women. It brings together stories from journalists, critics, musicians and fans about artists or songs we love (or used to love) despite their questionable or troubling gender politics, and looks at how these issues interact with race, class and sexuality. As much celebration as critique, this collection explores the joys, tensions, contradictions and complexities of women loving music - however that music may feel about them.
Featuring: murder ballads, country, metal, hip hop, emo, indie, Phil Spector, David Bowie, Guns N' Roses, 2Pac, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, AC/DC, Elvis Costello, Jarvis Cocker, Kanye West, Swans, Eminem, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Combichrist and many more.
