Guide_to_Designing_ResearchA Guide to Designing Research Questions for Beginning Music Therapy Researchers - now available in the AMTA Online Bookstore!

Chapters examine personal experiences with music, health, and well-being; assumptions about why music, health, and well-being fit together in the first place; beliefs about what kinds of research are most powerful;  and  contextual  influences, such as organizational culture, policies, and emerging social movements.

Authors: Katrina McFerran and Michael Silverman
