When having means losing: Music therapy with a young adolescent with a learning disability and emotional and behavioural difficulties. British Journal of Music Therapy, 11(1), 3-17. This research study investigates parent’s use of the CD “Baby Beats.” “Baby Beats” is a CD of songs for infants and young children given to parents upon their infant’s discharge from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A music therapy student performed the lullabies and folksongs recorded on “Baby Beats” in the style taught thru NICU-MT training. Along with the recording parents were given a booklet of developmentally appropriate activities to use with their infants while listening to the CD. Two weeks after discharge the parents were called and asked to answer a follow-up survey regarding their use of the CD and music with their infant. Parents were asked to respond to how important it is to use music, how often they use music, when they use music with their infant, and how their infant responds to music. Clinical implications are discussed. Kenny, C.B. (1998). Embracing complexity: The creation of a comprehensive research culture in music therapy. Journal of Music Therapy, 35(3), 201-217. The influence of music is dependent on extrinsic factors that connect you with the music personally (for example, memories and associations with various parts of your life), and intrinsic elements within the music (such as rhythm, melody, and harmony) (North & Hargreaves, 2008). Through our lives we build a legacy of music marking integral time points. In this way, certain songs easily evoke strong memories, such that we may clearly see and feel these moments in time (Schneck & Berger, 2006). With respect to intrinsic elements in music, current theory proposes that pitch related factors have strong impact on the mood and emotional feel (Zatorre et al., 2007). Generally, stimulative or energising music includes fast tempo, wide pitch variation, and syncopated rhythms. In contrast, relaxing or sedative music has slow tempo, low melodic range, and consistent rhythm (Zatorre et al., 2007).

Working in oils, her paintings use bold, vigorous, rhythmical strokes of impasto paint combined with delicate brushwork. This gives an exciting texture to the paint surface along with a sense of abstraction, which reflects nature’s contrasts and delicate harmonies. However, whilst the work is very painterly, it also has a strong sense of place. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.

The church was full of the most important artistic treasures of Byzantium, too. The chancel screen and the solea were decorated with beautiful icons that were unmatched in their artistry and holiness. The most talented artists were invited to decorate Hagia Sophia with paintings, mosaic and even sculpture both inside and out. We will never be able to fully appreciate the artistic heights Byzantine artists achieved, since almost everything has been lost to looters and religious zealots who hated art and beauty so much that they had to destroy it. We are fortunate that a very small part of the mosaics of Hagia Sophia have survived and that the Deesis – perhaps the greatest expression of Byzantine art ever created, has come down to us.

Renowned for its impressive collection of modern masterworks and outstanding contemporary objects, the modern and contemporary collection represents more than a century of artistic innovation. Encompassing over 12,500 works made since 1900, the museum’s collection includes works by such artistic luminaries as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse, and Georgia ‘Keeffe, as well as 33 paintings, drawings, and collages by the acclaimed abstract-expressionist Robert Motherwell. The collection also holds representative works from the major post-war art movements, including abstract expressionism, minimalism, pop art, conceptual art, and contemporary realism. Studies included in the review compared music therapy with either standard care or with CBT or a combination of both. Hsu and Lai, 72 not included in the review, assessed the effectiveness of soft music versus simple bed rest for treatment of major depressive disorder. They found significantly lesser depressive scores in the music group. Another study, Jones and Field 73 assessed the effects of massage therapy and music therapy on frontal EEG asymmetry in depressed adolescents and reported significantly attenuated frontal EEG asymmetry during and after the massage and music sessions. No report of significant difference between the groups is on depression reported.

Punk Rock is a music genre that emerged in the mid-1970s. Rooted in 1960s garage rock , punk bands rejected the perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. They typically produced short, fast-paced songs with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through independent record labels. The term “punk rock” was first used by American rock critics in the early 1970s to describe 1960s garage bands and certain subsequent acts they perceived as stylistic inheritors. When the movement now bearing the name developed from 1974 to 1976, acts such as Television, Patti Smith, and the Ramones in New York City; the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Damned in London; The Runaways in Los Angeles; and the Saints in Brisbane formed its vanguard. As 1977 approached, punk became a major cultural phenomenon in the UK. It spawned a punk subculture expressing youthful rebellion through distinctive styles of clothing and adornment (such as deliberately offensive T-shirts, leather jackets, studded or spiked bands and jewellery, safety pins, and bondage and S&M clothes) and a variety of anti-authoritarian ideologies. In 1977, the influence of the music and subculture became more pervasive, spreading worldwide, especially in England. It took root in a wide range of local scenes that often rejected affiliation with the mainstream. In the late 1970s, punk experienced a second wave as new acts that were not active during its formative years adopted the style. By the early 1980s, faster and more aggressive subgenres such as hardcore punk (e.g. Minor Threat), street punk (e.g. the Exploited), and anarcho-punk (e.g. Crass) became the predominant modes of punk rock. Musicians identifying with or inspired by punk also pursued other musical directions, giving rise to spinoffs such as post-punk, new wave, and later indie pop, alternative rock, and noise rock. By the 1990s, punk re-emerged into the mainstream with the success of punk rock and pop punk bands such as Green Day, Rancid, The Offspring, and Blink-182. A total of 12 universities were surveyed, with 5 allowing responses to be used for research purposes. The number of clients served ranges from 14 to 75, with one no response. Four of the five university clinics offer both group and individual services, however, two of those universities indicated that the majority of services provided are individual. While board certified music therapists are working in all 5 clinics, only one university indicated the university employs the music therapists full-time. Two universities indicated graduate students supervise practicum students in their clinics. One university has 3 adjunct professors responsible for clinical supervision in the clinic. One university has part-time music therapists who are paid hourly and are not university employees.
