520 1  "This book explores how people may use music in ways that 
       are helpful for them, especially in relation to a sense of
       wellbeing, belonging and participation. The central 
       premise for the study is that help is not a 
       decontextualized effect that music produces. The book 
       contributes to the current discourse on music, culture and
       society and it is developed in dialogue with related areas
       of study, such as music sociology, ethnomusicology, 
       community psychology and health promotion. Where Music 
       Helps describes the emerging movement that has been 
       labelled Community Music Therapy, and it presents 
       ethnographically informed case studies of eight music 
       projects (localized in England, Israel, Norway, and South 
       Africa)." "The various chapters of the book portray 
       "music's help" in action within a broad range of contexts;
       with individuals, groups and communities - all of whom 
       have been challenged by illness or disability, social and 
       cultural disadvantage or injustice. Music and musicing has
       helped these people find their voice (literally and 
       metaphorically); to be welcomed and to welcome, to be 
       accepted and to accept, to be together in different and 
       better ways, to project alternative messages about 
       themselves or their community and to connect with others 
       beyond their immediate environment. The overriding theme 
       that is explored is how music comes to afford things in 
       concert with its environments, which may suggest a way of 
       accounting for the role of music in music therapy without 
       reducing music to a secondary role in relation to the 
       "therapeutic," that is, being "just" as a symbol of 
       psychological states, a stimulus, or a text reflecting 
       socio-cultural content."--BOOK JACKET.
