Laurie Riley provides as usual an incredibly focused guide, covering all the diverse facets of therapeutic music entrepreneurship. I have found in the book many answers to my questions and a boost in developing a business plan to support this activity. Invaluable book whether you aim to work as a therapeutic musician individually or in a non-profit organization.
