Primer on Music Therapy from the Library of Congress

Concetta M. Tomaino is a music therapist and executive director for the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function. The Library of Congress has been doing a great series of presentations on Music and the Brain. Ms. Tomaino spoke on March 12, 2010 with a presentation titled: The Positive Effects of Music Therapy on Health. She then did a podcast discussing how music therapy has changed over the last ten to fifteen years and provided a wonderful modern primer on what music therapy is and where it is being used.

Dr. Jayne Standley from Florida State University did a presentation on May 14, 2010 titled: Wellness and Growth: Acoustic Medicine and Music Therapy. This presentation is not yet available through the Library, but I am confident it will be a must read in the future. I will try and link to it when I can. In the meantime, here is the podcast from Concetta Tomaino. It is only 17 minutes long, so well worth your time and manageable to fit into hectic schedules!
