Share this post:


The thoroughly updated 2nd Edition of Routledge’s ‘The Handbook of Music Therapy’ edited and co-authored by Professor Leslie Bunt (Emeritus Professor University of the West of England), Associate Professor Sarah Hoskyns (Programme Director for the Master of Music Therapy at Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music) and Associate Professor Sangeeta Swamy (California Institute of Integral Studies).

The new edition embraces theoretical and socio-cultural developments worldwide and takes readers on a journey through the historical and contemporary landscape of music therapy. Woven through the book are the wise voices of international music therapy Elders, three amazing women Professors, Denise Grocke, Cheryl Dileo, and the late – and sadly missed – Carolyn Kenny.

The book is enlivened by the stories of varied participants, illustrations from Dr Jonathan Barnes and Cherry Tewfik, new audio and video resources in chapter 13, and the thoroughly updated practice chapter contributions of esteemed colleagues and collaborators.

Te Kōkī NZSM will hold a breakfast book launch on Thursday 11th April 2024 from 9-10.30am, Adam Concert Room, NZSM.

The book is available direct from Routledge, (or other usual outlets).
