Music and Medicine by Anton Neumayr contains fascinating stories about the lives, works, and medical histories of some of the great composers of classical music of the 18th and 19th centuries. Neumayr's medical expertise brings a unique perspective to the lives of these talented musicians. Anton Neumayr, distinguished physician and accomplished musician, sheds new light on the lives of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. "Based on extensive research into primary sources and archival material in music, medicine, law and government, he is able to go far beyond previous accounts of the lives of the great musicians. His psychological insight is adapted to the period under discussion. While he can discuss the interplay of health and disease with the creativity of the composer, his deductions about the relationship remain close to the facts he discovered. The volumes are exceptionally well-written..." --Prof. Otto M. Marx, Biographies and Pathographies. Neumayr has spent over twenty years researching medical-historical questions related to the lives of the classical composers culminating in this fine text, originally published in Austria, MUSIK UND MEDIZIN, by Jugend and Volk, Vienna. Volume 1 of 3 volumes. Translation by Bruce Cooper Clark. To order, call: (800) 500-8205 or write to MEDI-ED Press, #5 White Place, Bloomington, IL 61701.

Why are we able to recognize melodies in our first days of life? Why does making music actually switch off the genes that signal stress? It is because music is part of who we are at the deepest level—and we don't need any special talent or training to harness its power to enhance our lives. With Music Medicine, music therapist Christine Stevens presents an information-packed resource, filled with scientifically-based practices for accessing and attuning to the natural healing properties of music. Drawing from a wealth of research and her own pioneering healing work in some of the most challenging places around the world, Stevens invites you to discover: Accessing the four elements of music-rhythm as medicine for the body, melody for the heart, harmony for the soul, and silence for the mind Conscious listening-how to open yourself fully to the healing potential that music offers Your musical self-accessing your voice, spirit, and inner music for healing and change Clinical research, case studies, and stories that reveal music's extraordinary capacity to reduce stress, prevent illness, and strengthen the immune system How music connects us to each other and creates community, even in places of war and conflict Inspirational guidance on how to use music for spirituality, personal growth, and well-being Healing playlists-each chapter features valuable download recommendations and links for selecting healing music The drum massage, creating your power song, full-body listening, and other effective and enjoyable practices “Music's medicine awaits your discovery,” says Christine Stevens. “I invite you to release any doubts that you are musical, and to realize the power of music to nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul.” With Music Medicine, she provides a thoroughly researched and practical guide for integrating the healing benefits of sound into your life—and discovering the extraordinary transformation that occurs when we liberate our own inner music. “Music can provide the support we need in life's challenging moments, and more importantly, music can become part of our daily routine for spirituality and health.

"One of the best pieces of ethnomusicological research of the last ten years. Roseman shows just how central musical ideas and practices are to a way of knowing and imagining the world, to a way of transforming ordinary experiences, and to penetrating belief systems more broadly."—Steven Feld, University of Texas, Austin "An exciting contribution to interpretive medical anthropology. Moving analytically between Temiar cultural constrictions of illness and health, and the humanely organized sounds of healing ceremonies, Roseman explicates the culural logic whereby aesthetic configurations participate in a comprehensive, therapeutically effective pattern of reality. This author has brocaded medical anthropology with ethnomusicology, producing a shimmering postmodern ethnographic tapestry of great subtlety and strength."—Barbara Tedlock, SUNY, Buffalo

Music, whether performed or heard, has been seen as therapeutic in the history of many cultures. How have its therapeutic properties been conceptualized and explained? Which cultures have used music therapy? What were their aims and techniques, and how much continuity is there between ancient, medieval and modern practice? These are the questions addressed by the essays in this volume. They focus on the place of music therapy in European intellectual, medical and musical traditions, from their classical roots to the development of the music therapy profession since the Second World War. Chapters covering the Judaic, Islamic, Indian and South-East Asian traditions add global, comparative perspectives. Music as Medicine is the first book to establish the whole shape of the history of music therapy in a systematic and scholarly way. It addresses the problem of defining what music therapy has meant in different cultures and periods, and sets the agenda for future research in the subject. It will appeal to a diverse readership of historians, musicologists, anthropologists, and practitioners.
