Healing Power of Music/
By Steve Toll and Linda Bareham
You donít need to have any special
musical training to institute a therapeutic music
program. You will need to select appropriate music,
however. This music consists of familiar tunes from the
30s, 40s and 50s with more contemporary music included,
depending on the preference or age of the participant.
Before you invest in any CDs, check in your own home for
possible sources of music. Your local library is a good
source. Consider individual preferences and select music
that is singable and upbeat.
