Music effects the body/mind, and the body/mind of the player affects the playing of music. Laurie Riley discusses our cultural relationship with music, how the brain learns it, how we practice it, how we perform it, how we listen to it, how we teach it, and finally, how it is used in purposely therapeutic ways. This is a revised and updated edition (2010) incorporating the addition two of Laurie’s previous books: Nothing Less Than Your Best and The Art of Teaching.
