Publications

We have collected these publications without being able to, or ever aiming to collect them all. They are just music therapy related publications, either on their own, or we would suggest a whole site to you, that would have many publications collected already. Remember, this is just a guide on places, sites for you to read or check out.

Since our interest is younger people, we have only listed publications that relate to our subject.

Susan Hallam: The Power of Music: Its Impact on the Intellectual, Social and Personal Development of Children and Young People

In August 2010, Professor Susan Hallam of the Institute of Education at the University of London, published an overview paper on the impact of music on intellectual, personal and social development. Drawing on the results of numerous studies, she concludes that playing an instrument can lead to a sense of achievement; an increase in self-esteem; increased confidence; self-discipline; and provide a means of self-expression. While participating in musical groups promotes friendships; social skills; a sense of belonging; team-work; co-operation; commitment; mutual support; increased concentration and provides an outlet for relaxation.
