The author provides an approach to community music therapy practice that offers various matrices for music, formats, aims, contexts, evaluation, and theory. Through case studies, original research, and theory vignettes, the text offers an accessible way of integrating music therapy services and professional processes. Practical examples are drawn from neurological rehabilitation in medical and community settings, and from long-term nursing care, to illustrate how music therapy can adapt to meet the needs of participants and their situating context.
