Muriel Barclay was born in Glasgow. Procter, S. (2005). Parents, children and their therapists. A collaborative research project examining therapists-parent interactions in a music therapy clinic. British Journal of Music Therapy, 19(2), 45-58. Combines ethnomusicology and experiential learning by exploring the diverse communities of Boston and their music. Since 17th-century encounters between the Wampanoag Nation and English Puritans, Boston has been characterized by intercultural contact and exchange. Discusses the history and legacies of such encounters, as well as present-day issues of diversity and belonging in Boston. Focuses on how communities reinforce their own cultural bonds through music and discusses alliances formed through shared experiences of diasporic, exilic, refugee, immigrant, and minority status. Through interdisciplinary, ethnographic analysis and practice, offers students an opportunity to explore how these inherently intersectional social dynamics—which engage issues of race, gender, class, ethnicity, etc.—play out through collective and individual musical practices.

Nail art is the most versatile and latest fashion statement today. Miller, C., & Teramoto, M. (2015). Music therapy as a treatment for patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. International Journal of Mental Health & Psychiatry, 1(1), 1-3. Today, Nael devotes his time fully to painting and continues to be inspired by his deep love of nature, and his fascination with the elements so dramatically displayed within the Scottish landscape and its coastlines. His paintings often transcend the immediate depiction of the landscape and embrace the human relationship with the land. From the people living in these areas- the fisherfolk and their relationship with the sea, and the farmers working the land, Nael Hanna is driven to capture the rhythms, atmosphere and textures so unique to this part of the world.
