For the collection of data, participants listened to an excerpt and then filled out a short survey consisting of the following three questions: “Does this piece sound happy or sad?” “Do you like this music?” and “How would you describe this music?” For the first question children circled either a happy or a sad face; response options for the second question were thumb up, thumb down, or thumb and fingers making an “ok” sign. Lines were provided for the children to respond in a free operant manner to the last question. Children listened to an excerpt (approximately one minute long) and then answered the three questions in their booklet. Children participated in the project in groups of approximately 20 in a classroom with desks and chairs and a portable CD player. Thomas Nozkowski: Drawings (exhibition catalogue).

Neo-Minimalism is an art movement of the late 20th and 21st century. As a part of Post Modern Art, Neo-minimalism brought Minimalist Art closer to Meditative Art by paving way to contemplation for the viewer. In removing the excesses, as Meditative Art form, Neo-minimalism tries to help the viewer analyze the subject and transcend to a higher plane of consciousness. Besides an artist’s genius in painting, it also tries to express the greater will through its concept and creation. Allen, R., Hill, E., & Heaton, P.

During each baseline (A), subjects were observed while completing a previously learned group music task without therapist facilitation. During the first intervention (B), the music therapist taught the social skills song to the subjects and facilitated role-play of the specific social initiation behaviors targeted in the song (e.g., eye contact, physical touch to gain attention, etc.). During the second intervention (C), subjects engaged in singing the social skills song with the music therapist, then completed the previously learned group music task with therapist facilitation to practice social initiation behaviors. Data was collected during baseline phases only via event recording on an author-created data sheet. Due to the limitations of this study, the authors served as trained observers and inter-rater agreement was 98{665e5bb4999eb4b63bc5cf86855959e213eef9597fcb7384ae9a16de7fc2db97} (average) throughout the length of the study.

As an artist trying to pick up the drawing pencil again after many years, I very much enjoyed reading about Frederick McCubbin and seeing his paintings. So much talent, it leaves me speechless just looking at his work. I have to say that from the paintings you posted, my favorites are “View Near Fisherman’s Bend” and “Sheperd’s Hut”, but all of the paintings of his you posted are breathtaking. It was also very interesting to read his biography, the life behind the painter, especially to learn that he was also a baker and ended up taking over the family’s bakery business. McCubbin’s life and works greatly inspired me to grow as an artist. Thank you for writing this article. Spies, Werner. La Collection du Centre Georges Pompidou: les Chefs-d’oeuvre du MNAM.” Exh. cat.

The purpose of this study was a) to determine whether improvisational music therapy can promote joint attention; b) to explore parents’ and teachers’ perspectives such as perceptions on the child’s growth, importance of music therapy in the development of the child, and underlying factors that might influence the child’s growth, through a qualitative analysis of the data. The research hypothesis was that children with autism who receive music-centered improvisational music therapy will increase expression of joint attention through actions of turning to faces, turn taking, response to joint attention and initiating joint attention.

Reyes Padilla – My work is created by actively painting what I see while listening to music. Hello John. This is another great article in this successful series. The paintings displayed show real depth of talent. It is good to know more about Australian artists as they are not household names here in the states. My gosh! McCubbin was a master of painting – some of the images you present, Jodah, take time to just sit and gaze at them, to marvel at the faint detail in the background. “Bush Idyll” is so lovely and would look great on my dining room turned office wall where I spend most of my time. And you are fine writer, my friend. I love these Australian artist series you work so hard on. Magnificent ! (my favorite word today and I chose it for you).
